Thread Starter 
I've been all over BYC and can't contain my excitement anymore. I have been a professional organic gardener for the last 20 years. I was thinking of adopting a new dog and then the lightbulb went off and I thought I should get a pet that earns its keep. So far we are in coop building phase- I'm trying to get most materials free. This little venture is costly. Reminds me of Dolly Parton when she said "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap".

Do not figure the price of your first dozen eggs.  :barnie  Welcome to BYC, and good luck with building your coop and establishing your flock.

 

My father in law was a mason and after every job he would stand back, stare at his work, and say "Good enough!"  Thanks for providing a family flashback.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
