It will be exciting to hear what other new chickens Nicole has in four years time.

We have lots of these dramatic Stealth Chickens around here.  They're also known locally as the Darth Vader Chicken.

Or put it out in the garden to keep a set of hand tools in so they stay dry. I'm not a person who throws much away, but a microwave might get just flat tossed in the trash.

Round here it's rural and very wet and lots of neighbours use old microwaves as a post/mail box at the end of their drive.

Re old fridges:  I'm loving all the pictures of what Brits call the old "American Style" fridges with the rounded forms and lovely handles that give that re-assuring click when they close.  

I've not got an old fridge around these days as I had to part with it when I moved but I do have a lot of the glass and wire shelves from old fridges.  The glass ones make a decent portable mini green house and the wire racks - well, any number of uses eg. screwed up as shelves in a workshop, for drying greens etc.

Probably the best book on this subject is:

The Invisible Rainbow by Arthur Firstenberg published by Chelsea Green.

Here's the link:

The Invisible Rainbow

The book covers electricity, EMFs, satellites and lots of other areas relevant to this thread.    

And this is the author bio from the Chelsea Green website:

"Arthur Firstenberg is a scientist and journalist who is at the forefront of a global movement to tear down the taboo surrounding this subject. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Cornell University with a degree in mathematics, he attended the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine from 1978 to 1982. Injury by X-ray overdose cut short his medical career. For the past thirty-eight years he has been a researcher, consultant, and lecturer on the health and environmental effects of electromagnetic radiation, as well as a practitioner of several healing arts."

This is a deeply personal subject to me too.  sx
