    My husband is putting up insulation on the walls of the coop and covering it with paneling. He come running in the back door telling me he needs help in the coop. He says the chickens are wanting to go to bed and they are biting him and yelling. I go out there and he is trying to put the perch back on the wall and he has a buff orp standing on the back of his leg and biting his back. She is tired of waiting for him to hang it and she wants to go to bed. The whole coop is in total chaos. All the chickens are walking around trying to figure out where they are going to sleep for the night. I grab the orp and hold her along with the light so he can see to put the perch back on the wall and they slowly began to settle down. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw all the commotion in the coop.

    Never ruin a girl's beauty sleep. How would you like the contractor decided to renovate your bedroom when you are ready for bed? :)

    I really wish I could have gotten a video of the chickens last night. My sweet little chickens had enough of all the commotion and by gosh they were ready for bed. Skittles the buff orp was the ring leader of the whole bunch. My husband said she followed him when he come inside to ask me for help. She was making sure that he come back out to hang that perch. As soon as I saw him kneel down to hang the perch she was on his legs biting him in the back. I couldn't stop laughing when I picked her up and assured her that it would be done shortly. When he was done I sit her on the perch and two more chickens tried to join her. She run them off she was the one that got this job done and she wasn't sharing her perch with anybody.

    Whenever I have work to do in the coop, I make sure all materials are prepped and ready to go. Construction may begin after standard laying hours and must conclude before dusk. I don't want any trouble.

    I throw scratch in the run whenever I need to work on or clean the coop.
