    DH and I saw these all over New England and love them (would love to know the history,if anyone knows). Any idea where I can order one/what they are called? I really want to put one on our coop.

    If you search Amish Star there are sites that sell them I just looked 50+ and shipping, that was for the metal ones, I have a couple that are wooden. Easyer to paint, and not as heavy to hang.

    Edited to add: you can always look at the Amish Star on a quilt, and 50 wont seem so bad, they start around 700

    We had one of the round painted wood ones inside our dome growing up. Uncle sent it to us from back East. It had 2 water drops on each side of the star. Supposedly meaning "twice the rain", as California was (and is) in a drought (even as it rains as I type).

    I want to MAKE my own for my coop. Any ideas about what to put on it? I was thinking something that kept FIRE away (yes, we're in a hazard area) and made them produce more eggs. ?? [​IMG]
