    They are only going to be in the brooder for around 6-7 week, so why don't you build them a basic brooder that will meet their needs and make taking care of them easy for you and build them a really pretty coop instead? Look at Sally Sunshine's coops for inspiration [​IMG]

    Here are some brooder designs from the coop pages:

    If you type "chicken names" into the advanced search bar you will get a good few threads on chicken names. You'll get loads of ideas there.
