    A little nervous. [​IMG]

    Today DH and I put up fencing along the openings of the barn and left it open for air tonight. We've been able to get away with closing up the barn at night because the temperatures haven't gone much above 70F in the daytime -- but that is changing. We're heading for the 80s this week and close to 90 soon.

    I keep reminding myself I have two loud geese in there and a husky as well as two turkeys and 19 chickens. I keep a light on so they don't fall into that stupor when it gets totally dark. Still, it's nerve-wracking. [​IMG]

    I'm going to install a remote camera in my coop. It will save numerous trips back and forth plus batteries for my flashlight. [​IMG]
