    Well, I got tired to trying to buy a unique chicken mailbox and decided to make my own. Here are a couple of pictures. Hope you enjoy.

    I have boxed out the address:

    Very nice, I would love to do something nice on my mail box, But I don't want to have it smashed by misfits, farmers, or the civil workers.

    Thanks for all the great comments but I guess I hadn't thought about showing my address so I now have deleted the pictures. I must be too trusting.

    Can you crop them to just show the decorations? They really are very well done!

    I have boxed out the address and re-posted. Thanks for all the suggestion and comments. I wish I could say that I had all that artistic ability but I can't lie. I have found out that you can take any picture and trace on just about anything with colored tracing paper and paint away. Don't be afraid to try.
