Because DD wants orange

I nearly said the orange were out of stock.....but I chickened out (pun intentional)

OOOh a tangerine dream.

orange is nice and sunny .

i don't have space for an Eglu but I just checked the website and am now drooling over the new guinea pig runs!

i want a yellow one, but I think perhaps green would hide the chook poo better.

they are lovely - but would they get stolen from a town garden?

Does anyone own one?

purple ... the chickens will blend in too easily with the orange - will that work to try and persuade dd?

KatyMac · 08/06/2009 21:55

Nah she's 11 & the chicken is black

purple - I bought mine 2nd hand (dd wanted a pink one) & it's very lovely.

I have purple but would love an orange one

crkm · 10/06/2009 20:19

I have a green one - it doesn't hide the poo!!!

Oh Katy, a mother's sacrifice!! You know I've just ordered the purple so I won't tell you how it looks when it finally arrives I promise. Just think what a good mother you are, I didn't even ask any of mine what they would like !

She has changed her mind

She wants purple - to match her uniform (that's for when she is working not her school uniform)

Phew.....anyone would think they were her chickens or something
