    I made it out of an old sunflower stalk, I'd put them on it and they'd hang out for a few minutes, but today I went out into the coop and they were hoping on it like mad.

    According to the awesome people in the "What breed am I" section, Ophelia is a Salmon Faverolle and Violet is a Partridge Cochin
