    Why oh why did I have to do this..lol

    Just had to paint my new doc bob kennel from tsc

    And let me tell u, painting kennel panels is no fun,extremely messy, and very very time consuming

    Tommorrow..they better go up

    Where oh where is my auto door I bought last month..??

    So more things have to be done..but my goal is to have these chickens I adore, don't get me wrong, I love them

    But time theynget out of the foyer of my house


    I do want to say one more thing..it's like never ending..lol

    Just thought I would vent..lol

    Did you paint it with brush ? I spray painted mine last fall and yes you're right it's not fun, not at all lol.

    I also painted the wood panels today, 5 of them, each one is 8 ft long and 6ft height. I have to paint the remaining 3 tomorrow.

    Have you decided what to do with the roof ? Plan ahead, get your materials and focus on what you're going to do that day before hand and stick to it. How many chicks did you have in all ?

    Keep us posted with your progress.
