Okay. Here we are, into week 8 tomorrow. We began this project on April 22nd and tomorrow will be the 8 week mark. Hooray!!! We nearly can't stand one another any longer when working on the coop/run. Thank God it is finished (except for some trim on the hardware cloth) and my husband says he doesn't need me to help on this. I am not unhappy. Our little ones are inside the coop and digging their extra space after being raised in a card board box brooder! The weather is heating up and it was 99 degrees today. We made a temporary screen door on the back to let in extra ventilation. I will post pictures of the project soon. We are both burned out right now, but love our little flock and enjoy the fact that they are getting used to us and come when we open up the door. I know, food is the secret and I give them organic rolled oats and dried worms!
Whatever it takes, I love animals. Also, thank God for our neighbor Mick. He came to help put on the roofing shingles and also to staple the hardware cloth all around the run. He said he enjoyed the "quality time" with us, but he has no idea how much we appreciated his help. (perhaps he does) All in all, it has been one heck of an experience
and I truly believe that all things happen for a reason. We Become stronger when we are tested and we appreciate more through our accomplishments.
I will get off of the soap box and let someone else have a turn. Thanks.
