    So it is official. I do not have to host Thanksgiving this year! [​IMG] My brother is doing the honors. For this I am truly grateful!
    We will go up to the in laws on Saturday to stuff ourselves a second time.

    Haha! I will still end up cooking and cleaning up both times, but I will not have to rearrange my home. The guest bathroom is now called the cat bathroom, if you can imagine!

    Tippy, do you have other animals beside chickens?

    Good night, Tippy! School night here, and I am getting drowsy. Falling asleep in front of the fire.

    I usually only get on during the week, while I'm at work.

    when I'm at the house, I don't have time to post.........lol

    granny, I took a few pics of the inlaws tractor.

    I think it will only be semi mobile, it's pretty dang heavy. Since we have a long time until Christmas, it's still a work in progress.



    this is the feed storage area, door closed.

    door open

    poos tray side, tray is removed.

    [​IMG]

    nesting box side, the roof will open up allowing access

    [​IMG]

    the main entrance.

    [​IMG]

    one thing to note, there will be boards all along the top, that will mimic the siding on the roost and feed storage portion of the tractor.

    this will allow there to be some shade all the time. Our south Texas summers can be brutal without it.

    I'm hoping about 4.

    hopefully the inlaws will do a little free ranging with their birds too. otherwise, it would probably only hold 2. The roosting area is 4' x2.5' with three sets of rods for roost, set up like stairs.
