Here is a picture of the armoire that I started converting into a coop for my extra small backyard city flock. I live at the entrance to our neighborhood so it has to be pretty and functional. Back yard and patio is decorated in shabby chic so I'm looking for a name that will fit. New to the forum and Open to any name suggestions!

Wow, I'm cringing at what retired just said, but I kind of agree, that was a beautiful armoire you could have sold for $500, and bought a decked out tractor with the money. :(. I don't think your an idiot, its your furniture, but, eek, that was really pretty. Now it's gonna be covered in chicken poop!

I think depending on where you get them from,hatchery or breeder, has a bit to do with broodiness. Hatcheries tend to breed the broodiness out of their birds, from what I've read, so they are more proficient layers. buff Orpingtons or Austrolorpes from a breeder maybe 2 good choices for broodiness, also I have heard that Silkies make good broodies.
