    Ok, I've read a lot of the coop name threads, and found some nice names.. but I, like everyone else, want mine to be different. :p

    There was one that really stuck out to me, Palais de Poulet. But, in my mind it makes it seem more of a French shabby chic coop.. which is totally not my style. I like more primitive, country, rustic style decor/design.

    I have no posted pics of my coop, because it's ugly!! :/ A bit embarrassingly ugly, really. It won't always be. Hopefully. With some paint and touches I am planning, I am hoping it will be cute.

    I can post pictures if that would be more helpful, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on ways to help me come up with something.

    If you have any questions, just ask. Thank you. :)

    Maybe a theme based on the color you plan to paint it, or maybe based on some other quirk.
    If you used Pallets to make it you could go with "The Pallet Pullet
    or if you used scrap you could go with "Happy Scrappy Henhouse"
    something like that. anyhow just some suggestions.

    Well I didn't build it from pallets or scrap. We used some scrap stuff but not mainly. I'm thinking of maybe painting it a sage green color with clay colored trim. Possibly some white too. My house is clay siding with hunter green shutters and white trim. It doesn't have to match the house per se but I don't want it to stick out like a sore thumb either.

    Right now it's light gray with some charcoal gray thrown on here and there. That's just what we had laying around as far as paint. And I wanted to at least seal it from the weather for now.

    What kind of chickens do you have? Just one breed or different ones? You could name it with something to do with the kind of chickens you have or where you got them. Maybe look up book or movie names. I never really thought about naming my coop. I painted it the same color as my garage because it sits right next to it. I'm usually pretty good at naming animals but not buildings :)
