Ava is a normal chicken villager in the Animal Crossing series. Her name comes from the word ova, the Latin word for eggs, which chickens lay. It is also possible that her name comes from the word "avian," meaning bird. Her catchphrase, "beaker," possibly originates from the word, beak. Ava was absent in Animal Crossing: Wild World and Animal Crossing: City Folk.

In New Horizons, Ava has the music hobby and may sing anywhere without the need of a stereo.


Artwork of Ava from Animal Crossing.


Ava is a brown chicken with a plum-colored comb. Her face is a white color that transitions to brown when moving to behind her face. She also has large, black eyes that are crescent-shaped with beige outlines and eyelashes, giving Ava a country-esque look to her.


Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.

Ava is a normal villager, taking an interest in most hobbies, especially fishing and fossil hunting, and will act sweet and mother-like to the player and most other villagers. She goes to bed at 9:00 PM and will wake up at 5:00 AM, as she believes that too much sleep is unhealthy, and will express her concerns about this if the player has not spoken to her in a long time. As a result of her kindness, Ava gets along with many other villagers, as she acts parent-like to lazy villagers, and peppy villagers are alike as they are both "Girly".

Gender: Female
Clothes: Checkerboard Tee
Sign: Taurus
Phrase: beaker
Profile: Ava is about as average and clean cut as a chicken can be. She's up at the crack of dawn with all the roosters, but rather than crowing at the sun she's busy tidying up her room. She gets along well with the other animals–except the wolves.
