As I said, my chicken coop flooded last week. Fortunately, the hens don’t use it, preferring the lovely new, “handmade in the next village” coop I bought them. The original one was really for a bit of shelter and was a cheap import. However, flooding is flooding, and the suppliers very graciously agreed to a full refund after me having sent them LOADS of detailed pics of the water running down the inside walls!
Then I got some new hens, which are housed in the dodgy coop at the moment and I got to thinking about water and chickens etc.
Yesterday’s entry featured some lovely water-themed pieces from some wonderful Folksy sellers, and today I’m carrying on the general theme with a feature on chickens.
Yes, chickens! On Folksy, yes!
To get the ball rolling, here are some pics of my lovelies…all bantams:
Picture 1 shows my first two Pekins, Lemony and Buffy
Picture 2 shows my feisty Pekin cross, Milly
Picture 3 is my lovely new, extremely timid Welsummer, Holly – the “hole” at the back of her head is where an amorous cockerel has previously been holding her, pulling her feathers out, but they will grow back.
Picture 4 is one of my new Barnevelders, Wilma, the larger of the two.
Picture 5 is the other Barnevelder, Betty with Milly.
Picture 5 is the offending coop
And now, the moment you’ve all really been waiting for… the Folksy gallery!
When I started looking for chickens on Folksy, I didn’t really expect to find any – how wrong can you be?
All this stuff is fabulous and if you click on the pic you will be taken through to the relevant Folksy shop
First up is Melisa Moody with her shop, Sugarplum Kawaii: next comes Alison Deegan with her detailed lino cut print, which can be found in her shop, Hand-printed by A. Deegan: following nicely on is Connie Yates, Konnie Kapow, with her fabulous Chicken note cards (a pack of which I’ve just bought!)
And last, but by no means least is my absolute favourite…The Beach Hutchy from LittleHutchys
That’s all folksy, or should I say “Folksy folks”?
Thanks for bearing with me all this time.
