Over the years, what started out as a chicken or two has grown into, well, okay, we live in a chicken coop. I tried to confine it to the kitchen but it's slowly spilling out into the dining and living room.
And it's obviously taken over the yard.
But today, a quick tour of our indoor chicken coop.
|BEAUTIFUL 1950's glass chicken I found on our front porch one evening.|
Took me months to figure out that my very sweet neighbor found that and felt he should come live with us.
|This guy was one of the first hens to the party.|
|Found this fabric and just had to have it. It's a rooster motif inside chicken wire. |
I mean, who could walk away from that. So I had a cover made for my mixer out of this fabric.
|Love this little guy. I don't remember where I found him but I knew he'd fit right in.|
|Started to run out of space on the counter so I had to go vertical.|
|This is actually a note card but loved it so much, I framed it and hung it in the kitchen.|
|These two little guys are my most special possessions. I made them in ceramic class many years ago.|
|This is my alpha hen. She rules the kitchen.|
|Love this little lady. She's got her beak wide open and is always happy.|
|This is Bob. Not all the chicken have names but Bob will bob if you gently tap his head.|
|Another glass chicken.|
|And a Navajo chicken.|
|Bamboo and straw chickens. Ooo, a little dusty. Sorry about that.|
|More chickens on the wall.|
|I had a lady hand paint these tiles and they are on the backsplash behind the stove.|
I'm going to be seriously bummed the day we have to move and leave these guys behind.
|A metal chicken. Hmmm, he'd probably make good friends w/ Rusty my rooster.|
|Working chickens. This is Salt & Pepper.|
|And chicken towels, placemats and napkins of course.|
|More metal chickens on the wall.|
|And we have silly chickens.|
