    Just because I don't have a coop, doesn't mean my house isn't filled with chickens.

    DH is sweet to tolerate my collection. Here are some pics for your enjoyment.

    This is in my kitchen...

    There is an antique purse with a chicken on it in the background. I think it is from the 50s or 60s.

    This is probably only about half of the collection. I have chicken plates, dessert plates, glasses, mugs, and silverware. I also have a rooster-shaped soap dish, a rooster-shaped Tiffany-style lamp, and many other chicken items. [​IMG]

    Thanks! It will be years and years before it is handed down to anyone. I'm only 26, but have been collecting "chicken stuff" since fifth grade when I first became obsessed with chickens (I was an odd child but of course you understand [​IMG] ).

    Some of the more awesome objects include a chicken carved out of coal, antique chicken-themed Easter postcards, a printing press block with a chicken image on it, and a chicken-shaped basket made entirely from tiny pieces of paper. I had to cut back from collecting everything chicken-themed in sight, and now I just go for the hen on nest dishes.

    Look at all that great stuff! Where do you find it? I'm finding things little by little, here and there. eBay seems to have a lot of great things.

    Nice looking collection. What kind of wine is that with the chicken on the label? My father-in-law has chickens and a wine collection.
