    Well, my NN rooster Mo and his 2 australorp hens got a house yesterday. It's just a large dog house I got at lowes. Someone I know brought me a dog house but it was too little for them.

    Mo and his women have been in the garage b/c they got respiratory infections. It's been about 2 weeks ago. For the past 4 days there has been no sneezing, they gained weight, and Mo has been crowing non stop.

    So yesterday, I moved them back outside. Their new dog house is big enough that I could hang a heat source at the top for them. It's a ceramic heat bulb and high enough up that they can't get burned by it. Last night was a freakin battle to get them in it b/c it was new. All day today they kept going in and out. Too make me even happier I went out to put everyone up and Mo and his girls were in the house!!!! :) :)
    I guess they approve!!!
