    Welcome To Our Back Yard
    Bloomington, MN
    12 days and counting until my 4 babies arrive....2 Red stars, 1 EE, and 1 silver laced wyandotte.
    Well all five made it safely yesterday( June 23rd 2010) from MPC. Yep, I called the Friday before they shippped Monday and added a Australorp.
    They are the cutest thing. Although it takes a little bit to get used to their sleeping "look". We thought for sure the one was a goner!

    Our Coop Project

    This was the planning stage. We were scouting out the best location and size of the coop. Notice the cute Aussie helping out. (FYI that is my neighbors junk)

    We decided to attach the wire directly to the bottom frame because I might have to move the coop one day.
