I Won....


a 3 hole nest box from Pam and Billy at Life on a Southern Farm. I started reading Pam's blog several years ago when I first discovered blogs and have been a fan ever since. Her husband Billy is quite the builder and he started building nest boxes that have apparently taken over their life. Oh how I wanted one of these but just stuck with my recycle bins nailed to the wall. They have had several giveaways and I have entered every one, along with a lot of other chicken owners. Boy was I surprised when Pam contacted me and told me I'd won. I asked Billy to autograph it. One person's nest box is another person's art and no matter what he builds whether it's an incubator or a boat it is always a work of art.
Now those recycle bins can go into the recycle bin because my hens are moving uptown to their new Hen Pals Nest Box.

I'm one of those people who won nesting boxes from Pam (my girls like them!) and I didn't think to have Billy sign it. What a great idea. I can't believe what that man makes. He even casts the aluminum fittings for the boats he makes.

Congratulations! The nest box is on it's long trip from Georgia to you.
Can't wait for your girls to try it out.

P.S. You have the only autographed nest box out of over 2500! It may be a collector's item. :)

Only you would think of an autographed nest box. What a great idea. However, don't get carried away. DO NOT ask Pebbles for an autographed anything. We will never hear the end of it.
