    I heard that wall colors can affect a chicken egg laying. Some colors encourage laying, and others slow down production. I just finished painting my girls wall Daffodil Yellow, and I wanted to paint a big tree on the wall. Has any one heard any truth to this, and can you post a link to the article?

    I have a wall mural on our block fence.

    The inside is painted lettuce green and light amethyst. I also am planning on painting a tree and flowers, etc on the inside wall. My girls are laying just fine. I get 7 out of 8 eggs a day from the girls.

    How beautiful! I love the curtains . . . Could it be that someone else loves their chickens as much as I do! Happy Clucks, Juliana

    LOVE it!

    Oour inside walls are painted a light, sunny yellow. It helps banish the dimness, as we have no lighting in there.

    Thank you. They are my girls!!! They love their mama for sure too. Almost lost one to a respiratory infection on Tuesday. Actually took her to the ER Vet at 10 pm. She was in critical condition. Her throat was swollen and she could not breathe. Dr. took great care of her. She is much better now.​

    Quote:I wanted the coop to look like a garden shed if in the future we moved, it wouldn't take away from the yard. My girls love their new coop. The are getting very smart and since it is cool in there, they hang out in there when the temps rise here.
