Frank finds grand prize, eager to show

Hi farm friends, hope your week is off to a great start. We are having such a great time sorting through  your incredibly clever suggestions in naming our new chicken house. The hens are not only clucking about the contest, they even sent Frank Rooster out to get the grand prize. The little fella brought it by earlier today to show it to me and I thought you all might want to see it too. His taste in gifts tends toward his own kind--chicken--yet his choices are not paltry. He found a beautiful ceramic rooster, a chicken book marker, and a great little book on poultry. The lucky contest winner will be selected on Wednesday night. No idea is a bad idea, and we, as well as Frank and the hen house, are grateful for your suggestions and participation.


And, we also are doing a giveaway for all who leave a comment on this post for one entry-- and another entry for sharing the contest on your site. This winner will be selected by random drawing and will have a different prize especially for them.


Good luck to all.

Cluck, cluck,

Well, Amy you do have a talented rooster and he has really good taste. Frank picked out a lovely rooster. Frank is going to need his own blog soon as I see him fast outgrowing sharing your blog with him. You know how pompous rooters get, especially in the spring. I tried to think up a new name but drew a blank. I will point people to your give away in my post for Tuesday.
I am sure there are would be farm girls who would love a giveaway to chase away the winter doldrums.
Have a great Monday.

What an awesome prize! I'm hoping my Elvis-inspired name will win!

(sending subliminal messages to Frank right now -- pick me, pick me...)

Haha! Have a great day, Amy!

That cute coop should be called Layin' Lane. Frank said he thought the rooster would look fabulous at the Red Farmhouse, by the way.

HELLO!! I'm still trying to think of a name and all I could come up with were,
the Red Roost Inn
and Hen Haven, that I 'think' was all ready suggested.

Good luck!! It's a nice give-a-way!! Hope your week is off to a good start!

Angela said...

That is a sweet prize for someone to win! Good luck in picking a name from all of those wonderful entries! Whew! I for one would have a hard time picking!

What an adorable rooster....

Phyllis said...

Hey Amy,

Thank you for your compliments. I enjoy working hard (and smart), always trying to improve things in one way or another. I am determined to get a lot accomplished this year! Next on the list, making improvements to the chicken run and barn. I got two new friends Sunday and can't wait to post about them!!! (You'll love them)

Mary said...

I love your ceramic rooster, it's bright and cheery. ;)

Jill said...

I keep trying to think of a name for your hen house and am having a rough time coming up with something. I thought of greens eggs and ham in Italian, but it does not flow very well. Frank is a lucky guy. You could call it the "Lucky Frank". Ha.

Faith Hope and Cherrytea said...

definitely not paltry!
well thought out & generous come to mind :) thank you !

Anonymous said...

Frank has wonderful taste :) This rooster would look wonderful on my kitchen table with my ceramic hens! Good luck picking a name!

brokenteepee said...

What a cute prize. I have been trying to think of a name but being a goat it's hard. How about Henpecked House 'cause the publicist always complains that the hens peck her when she tries to get the eggs.

I love your coop, and I love hens. We have 17 of our own. I'd rather have your adorable coop, though. Hope you find a great name!
