Quote:I love your sign!! One of my Buff Orpingtons is named Oleo.
thanks Red its old family tradition to name things after oleo.
We have named ours 'Fort Chix'. I spent a long time trying to make it 'attack proof', so my better half named it so
Our coop is called The Chicken Condo. Nothing too original. Hope this picture works...first time trying to upload.

We call ours Cirque de Poulet. Our kitten can't stop watching the entertainment!
Quote:You will be going out to that coop at least twice a day regardless of weather. When the weather is nasty, you won't want to go too far. Close to the house is better.
Our chicken coop is almost done - so close that our four hens spent their first night in it last night! Naming the coop - what fun My current coop name is "The Strip Club" (i.e. chicken "strips") But, I have other names percolating: I have a RIR named Lucy and a Buff Brahma named Ethel, and am a big "I Love Lucy" fan. As I won't be having any roosters to name Ricky or Fred, I was thinking of an ode to Ricky, by naming the coop The Tropicana or The Babaloo Club, but am still leaning towards "The Strip Club".
Thank you, hallerlake. I really appreciate the information. I didn't want to put it too close to the woods, because you never know when something is coming out. But I wasn't too sure about having it close to the house either. My husband doesn't want to have foul smells around. I already mentioned to him it would be kept clean. We just had a skunk come to the back door of our house last night and sprayed two of my dogs. That wasn't fun. We love our animals and don't want anything to happen to them.

Quote:Love it! Mine have what I call "chicken races", especially right after I let them out in the morning. Maybe I should call their pen area (as opposed to the coops themselves) Preakness? Ascot? (but I don't have black and white hens...)
