Chickens (not mine) enjoying yard art (not mine, darn it)

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 | 2 comments

Years ago I saw this wonderful bamboo star in the chicken run at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks and have wanted one ever since.  

Though I’d put it in a flower bed or in the yard rather than share it with the chickens. Their abode is fancy enough already! (Pictures of the new TajMaHen to come soon…)


I think the bamboo star would be fun and fairly easy to make if I had some bamboo. Got any bamboo to spare?


Is there any yard art you are wishing for in your garden? Leave a comment and tell me about it!
