Keep the photos coming - they are fantastic!
Mrs Oz is at the farm until Sat morning. The kids have had a break from preshcool but return on Monday and they have their swimming lessons on Sat afternoons. SHe is taking photos with her phone and then going down to the beach to upload them using whatsapp. I have an Android for Analou to take over the task of atleast bi-weekly pics once they return.
Here is the current view from the beach side looking towards the highway. The marine grade plywood is visible behind the amacan skin you see on the front.
My goal is to reduce the amount of screen we use and convert to bamboo lattice. Its a case of time versus money. This batch of coops will be the last I use the screen on. As the sun wears it out, I will replace it on the other coops. I am using it here because I have six breeding groups ready to lay and I want to finally start breeding purebred chickens.
The sides now have the amacan as well. We had to send Antonia and her nanny on a field trip to the market in Cauayan (3km) to buy the conveyor belt material for the roof thatch. Our delivery from the hardware store wont make it til tomorrow. Hopefully a good chunk of the roof will be on tomorrow before Mrs Oz leaves.
