    I did it, I signed up to the forum. I've been coming to this site heaps over the past couple of months. We will in a few days adopt two laying hens. [​IMG] I have almost finished construction of our PVC trailer (More of a lawn sled). Coming up nice I think. Using a nice size second hand dog house and refurbing into a chook condo!
    Gail and I live in Western Sydney, near the Olympic Park White Elephant. [​IMG]

    Great site. You gotta love the internet. Whatever the interest, music, gardening, recording, politics, and now chooks! There's a place for everything.

    Photos of trailer coming soon.

    Gail's Lillies started blooming too. First ever bulbs. She's a happy woman.!
    I will post a detailed construction entry to my blog soon.

    Thanks for the gracious welcomes. I feel right at home already.
    Now we need the chooks to move in. Any day I think. [​IMG]

    What remains is the nesting perch and box, ribs on the ladder, paint the house, a minor roof re engineering is needed. [​IMG] No worry though. The whole PVC frame is skinned w/ chicken wire. The roof and walls can be removed and not create an insecure pen.
    Not Bad for a novice! [​IMG]

    Here's where I got to on day one. Tomorrow will be the chook wire all round and the steel roof and walls on the house end.

    Nice intro!

    I like the coop too, it's coming along nicely. I can't wait to see it all done. I might have some supplies laying around here to do something similar.

    Quote:12thharmonic.net is our blog (lack of posting due to other projects). The name comes from a mix of mathmatical influences. I am a musician, and an audio engineer. So harmonics apply. The 12th fret harmonic is a favorite with guitarists. My partner has a thing for astrology. Not that love sign nonsense. The more in depth observance of the sun and planets.

    So harmonics all around.
    Math is the language nature uses to explain itself to us.

    Clear as Mud?
