Adding signs to my coop, any suggestions? Got sayings/phrases?

    I completed my coop design today, and soon, when the weather breaks, from paper to backyard!![​IMG]

    While considering the look of my coop aestheticlly, I am considering making some funny signs that have catch phrases on them that are funny.

    Problem is, I don't know any funny catch phrases? Some one suggested " will rent for an egg a day" DD suggested "breakfast deposit box" for the outside of the nesting box. [​IMG]

    On the way, 3 RIR, 3 Comets.

    Most seasoned folks have been around a long time and have heard all kinds of funny things relating to chickens. I can also take that catch phrase, add a picture to it and cut it out of metal to hang on my coop.

    Thanks for reading my post and I look forward to reading some nice, funny, and gut busting chicken sayings/phrases.

    This is a GREAT forum with many knowlegeable (and funny [​IMG]) people.

    If you look under the Coop Designs, you will see signs on some of the coops!

    Good luck!

    I was hoping to get more catch phrases than the already known, the sky isn't falling yet...[​IMG]

    DW has decided on the sign that will be posted above the door.

    " The rooster is in charge of the flock, but the hen is in charge of the rooster "

    Can I get some help here?

    Still haven't added the sign I planned on putting on the coop.

    We call it "Cluck Med".

    I can do that, "Cluck Med "

    Maybe we could have a mother hen with a nurses hat, and chicks all around her?

    Maybe we could have several roosters around, waiting for their prized hen?

    It shouldn't come down to competition between the rooster and the hen.

    "city fowl no chickens allowed"
