Names of chickens

More and more people choose to have a chicken as a pet. Chickens are very intelligent animals . Those who think chickens are stupid are very much mistaken. A recent article in the journal Animal Cognition has reviewed a number of scientific investigations that reveal that chickens are capable of logical reasoning and have distinct personalities [1] .

CAT Spraying No More REVIEW

Cat Spraying No More is an excellent opportunity for the cat owners to learn about training the cat with a systematic approach. It helps in preventing the unwanted litter issues and other risks of bad feline behavior as well.

The cognitive abilities of chickens are far superior to what most people judge. They are as much or smarter than other birds and mammals and have been underestimated over the last few years.

If you have recently adopted a chicken, rescued it from some farm or were born a group of chicks on your farm and are looking for names for them, you have arrived at the right place. YourCatCareguide has prepared a list of names for chickens , these fantastic animals that can be excellent companions as well.

Names of laying hens

Many people may even wonder, but chickens are quite complex animals. They not only feel hunger, pain and fear, they are able to experience complex emotions such as boredom, frustration and joy. In addition, like other animals, they can be trained with positive reinforcement techniques [2] .

If you intend to train your chicken or simply increase the bond between you both, it is important that you choose a name for it. Chickens can learn their name and respond to the call.

Funny Chicken Names

Since it is proven that even personalities the hens possess, why not give a name that matches the personality of your hen ? Use your imagination when choosing a name for it. The important thing is that the name conveys positive feelings to you and is not similar to command words or commands not to confuse the chicken if you intend to train it.

The brains of chickens are about the size of a walnut. But in no way does this reduced brain size limit their capabilities. According to one of the studies that Marino reviewed in the article we are telling you, chickens are capable of performing several tasks at the same time. In addition, the most important sensory organ of them is the beak that has the ability to taste, smell and feel! Because it is a very sensitive organ, more and more studies point out that the amputation of chickens’ beaks, a very common practice in intensive farms, causes a great deal of pain and a significant decrease in the welfare of these animals [3] [4] .
