    I bought a really neat thing yesterday, I just couldn't pass it up. It was 90% off!! Originally $39.99 for $3.99!! I will hang it on the side of the coop where I first go in the gate of the chicken run. You never know when a Hen may just want to see how her feathers are arranged!!

    It is a 20 inch X 17 inch oval mirror with a nice metal frame and scroll work.

    My husband is still trying to figure out why the chickens need such a thing....

    Silly husband!![​IMG]

    I have a cheesy little mirror in the Sussex pen -- like 15 cents from a thrift store and I doubt it cost more than a buck ninety nine when new -- and some of them actually seem to find it quite entertaining.

    So your husband may actually be surprised... [​IMG]

    Now that I've seen it, I don't think any coop should be without one! Great find!

    Oh what a great find indeed. Of course the girls need to check their appearance every now and again. I completely understand the wisdom in this purchase. [​IMG]

  7. $3.99!!! :eek:
    I'm with DH! [​IMG]

    no.. it's ok if you decorate of course... but I think of 3.99 as being $10.01 away from another bag of feed [​IMG]
