I had to post this.  My friend is to shy to do it herself, but she said I could do it.  
In Jean's coup she has placed stainglass windows which tell the story of Christ in the form of a chicken.  Now don't get mad, Jean is into art history and historically the rooster has been used to represent Christ. Inside of the ceiling is painted blue with tin stars stuck to it.  There is also a chandaler (sic) w/ chickens hanging inside.  Unfortunately, I don't have photo's of the newest edition to the chaple, a steaple w/ stainedglass.

This totally rocks!!!!!
What a unique way to combine sharing the gospel and caring for the birds!
I would love to see pictures of each stained glass panel and the story behind each one!
I'm guessing she did the stained glass herself?
Definitely share pictures of the steeple too!
I LOVE IT!!!!

Yes, Jean did all of her own stain glass, In fact she learned how to do it just so she could use it in her coup.  I will be taking some new photographs of it soon and will post those.  I'm hoping to get detail images of the windows, the steeple, and who knows what else.
