    Hello World...

    In keeping with the El Cheapo tradition here are a few ideas for cheap construction. The roosts are cedar branches from prunings around our property. The nest boxes are all freebies, the old Roberts Dairy milk box, and the used drawers from an old dresser. Our 26 Silver Laced Wyandottes and 2 Muscovies love their bungalow.

    Cheers,

    Gypsea

    I love it!

    A few weeks ago we spotted a short, double decker bus in a field, rusting. We asked, but for some strange reason he wouldn't sell it. I thought it would have made a great guinea coop.

    Oh yeah, we hang out with the birds every evening and tip a few brewhaha's. Nothing like live entertainment...so much better than TV.

    So far we have only about $1700 into the whole schmoozle(I traded an old Yamaha motorcycle($1500) for the camper) and it most likely will last another 48 years.
