They are MOVED! The barn is OCCUPIED! They are all in shock, except Tiny. When I showed her the new "princess roost" with feeding cup, she was perfectly content. I said that to husband then started to laugh. He asked what was so funny. I said, oh, the irony! You gave the blind chicken a tin cup!
The baby monitor is installed and works, 15 watt bulb in brooder fixture clamped up high and pointed up at an angle for the nightlight for the entire building, all done. The only things really left to do are to move their little calcium feeders over and install a cage on the wall for an ailing chicken. Sadly, I have one right now that is by herself in a cage in one of the vacated buildings. Caroline, with her bad pendulous crop has terrible sour crop. It's much more difficult to treat than any other bird with a normal crop because it just hangs down, causing food to ferment by just sitting below the hole that leads out of the crop. She is 9 years old and if I can't fix it this time, we will probably lose her. I want to put the cage up ASAP so she won't be all alone over there.
PICS, PICS ! Atlas's pen first. You can see where DH painted behind the roost with the yellow and would have kept going if I hadn't yelled WHOA! Shows the yellow floors.
Hardware cloth screen-they will all have them, but we haven't finished, only Atlas's and the one in the extra pen on the other side of the aisle.
Wynette and Ida are still in the other coop. When Wynette's chicks hatch, I will move her to the extra pen across from the bantams.
The Old Hens-we moved the handicapped ramp over, too, and put a new top on the portable nestbox unit.
Deacon's girls. June stood on the roost and caterwauled for 20 minutes when I put her in there. She's the head hen.
And finally, the Belgian D'Anvers and Xander's crew.
