spring time is for chickens

Last week I was looking through the sales papers and discovered that Tractor Supply was running a sale on baby chickens, and had a really good deal on a roost and coop, so we took the plunge.
This is the spot we chose for our chickens, shady with still lots of sun.
The coop...it's one you (Chuck) assembles yourself.  We got the last one in the store.
Owen loved the chicks.  He giggled every time he put his hand in there and they scattered.
Hubby's handywork.  He only put one side on upside down. LOL
Say "chickens".
All finished.  We plan to modify it and put wire on the ground so no animals can dig up under the fencing.  We are starting to have some issues with coyotes in this area, and of course, all the neighborhood cats likes chickens.  But for now, we are keeping my new "babies" in the box in Chuck's workshop under a heat lamp until they get bigger.
Now all they need are names.  Any suggestions?
