Chicken Coop Gallery Wall

Chicken Portraits at Farmhouse38Remember these talented knuckleheads and their impressionist chicken portraits?  If not, check out the blog post here.

And remember how, after the new coop was unveiled, I was lamenting the bare wall over the roost bar?

Chicken Grit and Feed Dispensers from Farmhouse38

We can’t have that now, can we?

Well, I am sure for those of you who know me, this comes as no surprise:

It had to be done.

The chickens now have their very own schmancy gallery wall.  The kids’ art prints are all in those fantastic light-weight plastic frames from Ikea (very poop-proof), and they are attached to the wall with heavy-duty velcro for easy removal.

This is complete insanity.  I know.  But it makes me laugh.

Thanks C1, C2, and C3!  Your chicken artwork is perfection. 🙂

    If it makes you laugh, it is not insanity… it is better mental health!!

    To paraphrase the song: If loving them is wrong, I don’t wanna be right! LOL I think they’re adorable and the artwork is top notch!

      They really are! Truth be told, the first night after I put them in there, the girls wanted nothing to do with getting up on that roost bar next to them (I can’t sleep with those things staring at me!!). But by the next night, they had gotten comfy again. 😀

      Oh, trust me–there was a moment when that crossed my mind! And if I didn’t think them birds would eat every last piece of it off, I would have done it! Lol!!
