I raise backyard chickens and recently decided to solve a problem with a decorative solution. I had chairs out in the run so that my partner and I could sit back there to hang out from time to time. We love watching their adorable antics. However, the chickens would poop on the chairs way too much. Not cute.
So, I picked up some cheap second hand folding chairs. This way we can fold them when we are not there. I thought, why not add a little chicken silhouette to match the doors of the run? I printed out a guide-image, penciled in a drawing, and then painted free-hand with outdoor paint. I think they turned out great!
As a friend from the Bay Area pointed out, I “put a bird on it,” Portlandia-style. (Shhh — it’s really a documentary!)
