    X 2. I always have to decide who gets liquidated every time I think of hatching chicks. I refuse to get sucked in to chicken math. [​IMG]

    Hope you get to go ice fishing this weekend Phil!

    I just think we have too much for where we are... would be much easier if our land was flat and we had a barn... :/

    Yeah, working with slopes causes a bunch of problems. Usually you have good drainage though.

    Our lot is really flat and rain just puddles in the low spots because there's nowhere for it to go. Good thing we don't get much moisture here.

    Barns are nice. Winterstorms, no worries, and I just leave the birds in there until things pass. The only negative is it is a lot of space to keep secure.

    Our ground holds onto water like a tick on a cur... old cow pasture over limestone and layers upon layers of clay... :/



    Lucky you...



    I'd gladly deal with that, lol... or have secured coops within it...

    Awwww, that's sweet. Sorry you lost the house, but it shows that birds are a lot more resourceful than people give them credit for. Glad they are safe.
