Here's my latest felted piece, made with wool from our sheep, hand-processed and hand dyed.
I'm really enjoying the dimensional effects you can get!
I'm planning to bring this along to the Wakefield Marketplace in NH this weekend.

Hopefully they are making eggs….haven't seen any yet though.
Mini-Tutorial: How to make No-spill chicken feedersI used 2" pvc, which works fine, and I did not glue anything. I use a funnel (made from 1/2 soda bottle) to pour in the feed (you can see it hanging from a string.) Just beyond the feeders you can see the oyster shells and grit feeders also made from bottom half of 2L soda bottles and string. Use a desk hole puncher to make holes in the soda bottle to thread your string.
I put all of these inside our old pigeon loft and was careful to hide everything around the corner from the sheep's view, so they won't be tempted to break in. In the evening, I close the chicken door and plug the feeders with 2" pvc plugs (they are easier to use than the caps IMHO.) So far it's working!
