    Finally caught up! Loved all the pics too. I was going into chicken withdrawal being gone since Saturday morning! I have sprint for our wireless card and phones. Liberty's tower was down all weekend [​IMG]So I had to suffer without BYC and internet all weekend! Got an email off to M2H when we went to Richmond at least. Had a good visit with Mom and Pop in law too. DH went fishing, I wound up staying at camp, wanted to clean and dust the camper. Got to visit with old friends, lots of laughs!
    Realized summers about over too. [​IMG] So much left I want to do! I have 2 EE hens at point of lay, and several GLW pullets also I want to sell. If anyone is interested please PM me. Will be working on the roosters this week too. If anyone wants EE or GLW roos they are free to you guys. Going to put them on craigslist later in the week.

    Would you really want to try to sleep with those upper echelon chickens inches away waiting to peck your eyes out? They're trying to tell that Ungrateful Egg Eater that chickens want to be on the same level! Do you sleep on a trundle bed? [​IMG]
    On another note-- nice photography!
    pbirdhaven~ I take it that Bowling Ball is a chicken? We finally decided to go ahead and name our English chocolate bantam orp "Bonbon" even though it's a French word. She looks like the shape of a bonbon-- or bowling ball!
    jchny~ We love ya on the thread, too! I just meant that while you're getting away from it all by camping that maybe you'd enjoy an internet break. Glad you had a nice trip.

    CRSelvey~ Your coop looks like one of those fancy playhouses that some lucky kids have built for them. It's beautiful! Great job.
    Birdylady~ You'll have to post a picture after there are ducks and water in your new pool. They are really cute.

    That's how we enclosed our coop and run. Hardware cloth, along with 2x4 welded wire are buried 2 feet out horizontally, and that is up 2 feet vertically from the ground. Nothing can get in, I've seen cooper's hawks walking around looking for an entrance, and at night I'm sure there've been other creatures. My chickens feel safe enough that they sleep outside on a roost I have more welded wire around that area so racoons can't reach thru. Of course, there is the usual squabbling about who sleeps where. I suppose when it gets colder they will go in the coop. The pop door is always open.

    Yes, peacefull walls, great morning pictures of the scrambled eggs.
    Your coop/run looks great! Remember all the birds need is shelter, the rest is for the humans. We have no solar fan, but the solar night lights/security lamp works great.

    I too realize summer is coming to a close. We not longer are selling peaches or cantaloupes and the rest of the stuff is slowly dwindling.
    I have a few things I would like to accomplish on the coops before the weather starts getting cold. With two of them being lean-to style on the mini barn, I want to cut access to the barn and section off some sleeping areas so they are to be fully enclosed and not have to rely on tarps to batten down the hatches.
    Thinking I may sell my rock hens and maybe look into your GLW's. I would also love an EE Roo, but with mr lavender being a boy, I think two would be too many.

    Just caught up from the weekend. Hope you all had a nice one. We went to Turkey Run yesterday. Man am I feeling it today!! I always love going there and walking through the gorges. The closure of the suspension bridge does make for an extra few miles of hiking that my legs are not used to. Good thing the creek was super low. We walked right across the sand and cut the walk down considerably . Anyway. when we got home yesterday, I found 6 eggs in the coop. 1 was in the run, it was a SLW pullet egg. The other 5 were all in the same nesting box, even though we have 4 boxes for 9 girls. [​IMG]There was Peaches (EE) usual perfect pink egg, 2 more little brown SLW pullet eggs, Godiva's gigantic Australorp egg (doesn't ever fit in a carton), and a little cream colored flat sided egg. I'm pretty sure it was Lavender's, our Cochin. It is the second cream colored flat sided egg I have found, so I know that the same girl is laying them. They are new layers, so I am wondering if that is why the eggs aren't quite right yet. She is also my "faker". She will sit in the box forever and not lay anything. So I'm not even sure they are hers, but the Minorca and the two RIR girls haven't even explored the nesting boxes yet, so she is the only one that I haven't gotten an egg from. Has anyone else experienced the flat egg mystery?
