    Such great weather to work on our coops!! Yours is coming along so nicely! I love how you have your chicken ramp as the length of the wall when it is closed! I am so jealous you were able to find or locate used supplies - enjoy the day today! [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! I wanted to do that with the ramp and thankfully I was able to pull it off. I still have to replace the hinge with a heavier duty one.

    Last night after I posted I painted the nest boxes and the interior part of the door. Can't wait to get this done. The group was checking it out yesterday as I was painting. I had the door and ramp open and they were very interested. I think they know its going to be theirs soon.

    And a pond right there - water supply! Fun watching the ice melt off that pond in your pictures. Unless I'm seeing things.

    Nope your not seeing things. It is all melted now and the Canadian Geese have come back for the summer.

    I have 4 Pekin duck eggs in the bator on week 2 right now. I can't have a pond without ducks [​IMG]

    Great job
    I know what you mean about the weather this year, but looks like you got around it and got it done. What a great helper, I think he deserves his own tool belt...[​IMG]
