    decorated the outside of your coop? would love pics please!

    We have an old barn near us that I LOVE to look at; its a barnyard red (lol typical) but it has lots of old road signs on the side of it..just normal ones you see; but all beat up to heck..I dont know why..but I look at it
    EVERY TIME I GO BY..its not that they put new ones up or I dont see the speed limit or road curve ahead signs on the roads everyday lol...

    so I was looking into doing a take off of that..just cause I like it..but with chicken signs...kinda like these:

    (OR HAVE I COMPLETELY LOST IT???? decorating a coop?? but it IS going to be near my house...)

    You're not alone. I have been buying tin signs as well. I think that I have about 7 so far. My chicken house will also be barn yard red. I will decorate the inside and outside. I can't wait to finish it. I love your signs.

    If your chickens are going to free range at all, check to make sure none of you flowers are toxic to chickens.

    ETA: And if they aren't toxic the chickens are gonna eat them. I Hear the dollar store has wonderful fake flowers... [​IMG]

    I have some of those signs you've posted, and some others you haven't, which I am going to use for my new coop under construction. I think I might even use some INSIDE the coop. Why not? It's 8x8, has six foot tall walls, and a gabled roof. I may even SIT inside it on a little chair and visit with the chickens. So I should have some decoration on the inside walls too.
