    I can't believe that I am up this early on a Saturday morning! I have really been up since 5:45. [​IMG] I am trying to get things done before my DH gets home from work (he works 24 hr. shifts at the fire dept.) so we can get the coop finished!!! I want to be done with it sooooo bad! You know this whole chicken business is terrible when you are as excited to finish a coop as you are on Christmas morning! [​IMG]

    Get this... I placed an order for some grass plugs back in March. We have waited and waited for them to come. Well, they came yesterday, of course. [​IMG] Now, we have to do that BEFORE we can work on the coop. That is really why I have been up so early. I am watering the ground outside, so it will be softer to get those grass plugs in. THEN we can get going on the coop! Can't wait! I will post pics when finished. (With the coop that is. Who cares about the darn grass?!?!)

    Oh I can relate - I have orders coming from several nurseries and one came in the day before yesterday - while i was out of town. I came home and my family is like - some trees came.

    They never even unpacked them. So yesterday, in between a training trip to a feed lot 2 hours a way and having to go to hunter education until 10 pm - I planted the blackberry bush in the back. 5 minutes later I saw one of the dogs running away with it in his mouth! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So I replanted it in the front yard.

    Do you think ANYONE else could have helped? Sheesh.

    So, sorry for my rant - it is Saturday but I have to spend the entire day in hunter education. [​IMG]

    Can't wait to see your coop though! LOL... [​IMG] [​IMG]
