What are you talking about?
You see something different? Possibly bigger?
Do you see happy chickens? Or overwhelmed ones??? Lol
That’s right. WE FINISHED THE COOP. Thank God. We were so sick of it hanging over our heads (or at least Hunter was). We busted our tails today and trudged on through to wrap it up. I’m so happy! The long day ended with me arguing with the chickens that they were going to come OUT of the hutch and INTO their new home. They were not impressed with me but I persevered. They’ll learn to do things my way eventually won’t they???
(Now, shhhhhhh. Here’s my favorite girl.
Don’t tell the others. Just look at her feathers…black and white speckled. She knows she’s special too. She’s so much tamer than the wild black ones!)
I have no idea how big the coop is. Hunter shingled the roof and, between the two of us, we stretched the wire. They have a big open run and open building. The nesting box was given to us so it was free. I used 7 bags of the cypress mulch that we already had to cover the floor. I hope that’s ok for chickens to be on. The chicks seem pretty happy. We have plans to do some curtains for the winter but that shouldn’t be anything major. Biggest problem I have right now?
(Please ignore nasty shirt…we were working alright?!? He got a bath before bed I promise.)
It’s been a long, long day. I’m exhausted! There are some other projects that I finished up as well. And, I have got to show ya’ll pictures of my garden. It’s so wonderful. I finished the mulching up today. We are lacking some tomato cages but we’re trying to figure out what to do that won’t cost anything.
I plan on doing the absolute minimum that I can tomorrow. :o) I’ve earned it. I do have to clean out the hutch though so this sweet girl
can move back into her home. She will not be impressed with the smell, I’m sure.
Coop happy and delirious,
