    so seeing as the new chicken coop is my daughters , I'd like to make the coop playful , as far as the outside decorating.
    Might put pics on the inside too, want to make it fun for her, and eye appealing as well.
    thinking of painting outside, putting up window boxes, out of reach of the hens [​IMG]

    I also want to name the coop,

    ie: The Clucks , etc.

    have any of you named your hen houses? if so, what have you named them.
    I am sure the hens will each have a name as well.

    My husband is British. I am of British decent on my fathers side.

    Therefore we saw it fit to name our coop:

    Cluckingham Palace

    We almost went with Bawkingham Palace, but the other won lol

    Our Ladies rule the roost with graciousness and dignity....unless they are awake and eating/sleeping/pooping/laying eggs [​IMG]

    If you do a search, you'll find other threads with lots of coop names but for now, mine's The Feather Factory.

    I've been trying to find a font that looks like feathers so I can make a sign to paint and hang. Found a good one except the letters are a little too narrow. Painting would be really hard!

    Good luck with your naming and I'll bet your daughter would come up with some ideas too. [​IMG]
