wet, wet out here in Denver....
It's much needed and I'm hoping to stay out of the major drought we had a few years back. I remind myself of that each time I complain about the (darn) precipitation!
The chicks are 4 weeks old now. We are brooding indoors and I am ready for them to be outdoors! Once this rain is gone, I'm planning on painting the inside of the coop. I want 5 layers of paint on the floor and at least 2 on the walls. The list of things to do is never ending, but I think that once the coop gets painted and the run gets finished, we will be able to put the girls out - at least during the day.
Funny side note. I went in to clean the brooder by myself the other day. Normally, I take the lid off and my daughter pulls all the chick out and puts them in the box. The time, I forgot to call her. I went in with my hand gloved in a gray disposable glove and you would have thought I was MURDERING the chicks one by one after torturing them mercilessly! After I took the glove off they let me pick them up and were not so "chicken". It was hilarious but also a good reminder of chicken psychology. They are chicken!
