    I would love to see some photos of how you guys decorate your coops. We just had our coop delivered today and I would love to personalize it. Maybe a sign or two and it would be awesome if I could find a weather vane on the cheap. Get it? Cheap! Ha ha ha

    Anyway, if this is somewhere else on this board, please direct me to it. Otherwise, I would love to see decor photos!

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    Amazon has some cheep! weathervanes, I've got to order mine, now that my roof is done. I've got "eggs" on my side above the egg box and bunting flags on one end and I'll have lots of flowers. I'm treating my coop as a garden feature [​IMG]

    It's not much, just a stencil I made then painted on the coop. But I'm awfully fond of how it turned out.

    I do have a chicken tractor now and I keep thinking I should get a pinwheel and attach it to the roof of the tractor. Not sure how the chickens would take that, but my toddler would love it!

    Cute photos so far! Must check out the weather vanes on Amazon! Now that my coop is here, I am all egg-cited to decorate! I did buy a rooster wind chime that hangs above the trees near my coop. Only the beginning!

    I saw some really cute Rooster wind chimes at TSC too. My chicks aren't ready for the coop yet and wanted to know how the chickens react to the noise from the chimes? I guess they just get used to it, right? But I'm wondering if it will disturb them at night if the wind kicks up?
