    We're still working on the coop, getting the primer coat down. Unfortunately the girls have the run of our yard, until the coop is done and we pen them in.

    Our girls are constantly being chased away from the coop so we can work, Apparently they can't read, though:

    No, actually Buddy is a man of refined taste, that's a history book he's reading, lol. He had to read it first and make sure it was proper for my DD to read! [​IMG]
