    Thanks... but you juggle a lot more than most... dunno how you do it... Ben is lucky to have you for a dad...



    Chick culling sucks... not my first rodeo, just the most disappointing...

    Sorry Ruby, that's tough, especially the first one. It's never easy, but you get to the point that you realize it's the right thing to do.



    And... no more whining. The tunnel is clear [​IMG]

    Thanks and yay!! That's good news!! I'm happy you're feeling better. Keep yourself hydrated, I mean drink a LOT of water to make sure it stays clear.

    Still a work in progress, but a few pics of my new coop/building.
    The center building is for food, straw, etc storage, and egg collection.
    Coop/run on the right is the older flock's side. It has an automatic door on the run, and they free-range.
    Left side will have a much larger run for the LO's, when I get them moved. They won't free-range for a while.

    Here's how far it is from the house. The tree half-way in between is where I saw Big Guy fight off the hay bale. We were in front of the new building.
    [​IMG]

    I will paint it all red with white trim, going to add some trim to the door, etc... looks crappy now, but I'll dress it up.
    (wow, pic looks crooked too, but its not that bad [​IMG])
    [​IMG]

    Directly under the coop is now covered with siding, and from the footer to the ground is covered with wire, so they can't get under the building. They will be able to get under the wall on the back of the building. Their feed and water will be mounted and hung "inside". We will access the food/water from inside the building. Haven't decided whether it will be a solid wall inside, with a door into the feed, or whether we will just use wire to separate the areas.

    Here's the group, after they went in last night.

    Currently their food and water hang under the coop, but they will have access to the "food/water cave" under the wall on the right. We haven't extended the run to go over there yet.
    The PVC sticking out on the right of this pic comes from a gutter on top of the building, but will eventually feed a barrel inside the building, and will supply PVC tube waterers inside.

    Nest boxes from inside the building
    [​IMG]

    This pic was taken before we completed the lid on the other nest box.
    The back section is the area that the chicks will have access too.
