Firstly here is a picture of a sunrise greeting us on one of the first mornings here... Derelict old coup... Rotten walls... Back wall removed... Rotten piles.. Inspection time... I replaced some rotten timber, and retinned the rear wall. It would be a waste of time trying to salvage the whole thing. It's quite stable for its condition, so for now the chooks seem happy with it, even though DW thinks its an eye sore. I think it has character. However, it will do for another year or two until I get a new one built. Trying out the new coup.. we do however have a rat problem here...I set the water bowl in the middle to watch for them. I'll ask in pests how to control this..
