Well, it is Jan. 18th 20016 and I have started to rebuild Glenn Cottage Eggery! Yesterday I put in a new patio area for watching Chicken TV. I hope to put a bench much like this one in that area. This morning I started putting my chicken run closest to the back door back together. And just as I finished securing the last side.... one of my neighbors called all frantic about a chicken in her backyard being stalked by a cat! So... I went over, chased the chicken for a bit, finally cornered it and carried it home! I just put a couple of "found" ads to see is anyone is missing a chicken. If nobody claims it... I guess I have my first chicken! Unless it is a rooster! Then I have to find a home for it. Do you think is is too horrible of me not to post the photo of the chicken in the ad, but to ask people to describe the chicken they lost? I mean, it would be easy to say "Yes, that is my missing chicken in the photo." But... this bird is pretty easy to describe I would say... Our new Great Pyrenees, Cherokee, he is one year old now. Wasn't quite sure he approved of this strange creature in HIS backyard. This afternoon I started rebuilding the coop! What a job this is going to be! I took the old coop apart carefully, it was screwed together, and I saved all the screws. I am thinking it will go up much faster this time. Still a lot to do!! Getting the foundation bricks level is not so fun! I think I accomplished quite a bit in the past two days, hope to get the coop put together tomorrow.
