    Seeing as how I don't have enough to do [​IMG] I decided to make web footed stocking for our 10 ducks and then took plastic eggs which I painted and turned into ornaments. My boys 4-H poultry club was talking about having a contest, so I hurried up and put this together, but I think I was the only one that went through with it.

    We have posters with chickens on them (one of a Black Australorp, one from Storey that has awesome graphics "Chick Days" {both from a friendly feed store owner}, and one that Storey sent us along with a free box of every chicken book they've ever printed for Storey's Illustrated Guide to Poultry Breeds [​IMG] ) and a bulletin board with a sign that says "Gossip 'Round The Henhouse" (I made it). Hanging on the bulletin board are some awards and a photo of me with a chick when I was really young. Scattered around are various chicken artifacts such as a rubber chicken and a wooden chicken with feathers glued on (I made that too).

    I just started building our coop last night [​IMG] And I can't wait to decorate! I already bought a beautiful lavender colored paint to paint the inside of the coop with, and then thought I'd make a little rock walkway to the door. Plus possibly have a planter box or hanger. I can't wait to finish it![​IMG]

    PS love all the other ideas! [​IMG]

    Quote:I'm building mine with a copula JUST to add a weathervane to it. Well... That and to have heat stack ventilation.
