    I was at the craft store today, and decided I was going to make a sign for my chicken coop. I figured I would just paint "The Coop" on it, but then the thought "hey, I should ask BYC for idea's". Not sure if there is a diffrent place for this topic, I'm new here, so bear with me while I figure things out. [​IMG]

    Only Spoiled Chickens alowed
    Super Broiler Hide Out
    Egg Bank of __________(insert name of your street, county or town)

    Just a few thoughts.
    We call ours "The Chicken House" not very inventive, but we have to paint still. Maybe that will change the name.
    Happy Signage

    My coop is "Chez Poulet.". I commissioned a beautiful painted sign from a BYCer over a year ago.... A nice fat RIR and BO hen with three eggs , and the words, are painted on old barn siding wood.

    For another coop, the sign is "Gallinas Lindas" which is a play on the Spanish word for cute or pretty, as it relates to my name. So my hens are pretty AND they belong to me.

    And then I have a "ranch" sign out of cut metal, saying, "Olmstead Homestead."

    Fireguy, I think you need to change the one in the picture to Hen Hilton! That can't be a coop, if so I give you props, and an open invite to come build me one. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the idea's, Keep them coming..I may just have to switch out signs every week, hahaha.
