    [FONT=comic sans ms,sand] It has finally happened! We have our first egg!
    The kids noticed our Rhode Island Red go off from the flock to visit the nest boxes.
    And in a little while....Success!
    A perfect egg.

    [FONT=comic sans ms,sand]It was just a little smaller than a store bought egg. Not bad for a first attempt. [/FONT]

    [FONT=comic sans ms,sand]I seem to be the flock's rooster. They follow me around the yard and the RIR has been squatting for me all week.
    I am very proud of my girl!

    After a couple of months of using the coop we made a couple of adjustments.
    Moved the water and feed to the front.
    We also put sand down in the run.

    [FONT=comic sans ms,sand]Added a lower roost to give them more room and allow easier access to the higher branch.[/FONT]

    We think the bleaching oil is going to be a great choice. It should be low maintenance and look rustic when it grays out.
