    I'm getting the same math, but no direct from the farm option at the moment. I think it's great you have a source like that, even occasionally -

    I would love turn this into a coop. However, I don't have a way to move it and not close to Isle. Best part...it's free to the person who is able to move it off the guys property. So if anyone in MN lives close or has the means to move it, it may be a new coop.

    Omg you have no idea how much I was wishing I had a way to get that to our place! We've been so tight with our budget and have had so many projects to do since moving into our place -_-

    Nice coop, But would be a hassle to load and move. Rainin. We are close enough if you can figure out how to load and haul It, I might be able to give you a hand.


    Rhett, I think I got all my eggs today! I have 30 hens, not counting Creamettes,
    I got 24 eggs from in the coop
    4 eggs in the nest I took all the eggs from, I would think 28 eggs for 29 means no hidden nests, today...


    I got 3 turkey eggs from my 3 turkeys in captivity and 1 guinea hen egg from the turkey pen. The guineas can come and go from the pen, but they get in there and think they are stuck...





    Now on the bad side. I found 5 eggs and 1 turkey egg on a nest under some scrap iron on my scrap iron trailer... No idea how long they have been there. I look there all the time, but I just don't remember when I last looked. I put the eggs on the turner for the incubator, if I have room on Monday.

    ralphie you're way too kind! unfortunately we don't even have a truck. We've been getting lumber to build the run lately by taking two of our cars and loading it in strange ways lol We've been very creative with it even using the seatbelt to hold down lumber...

    Woot Woot Ralphie for all your eggs!! Mine, on the other hand, must be taking the day off. That is fine, they are entitled to some time off I suppose. ;)

    My hens have gone five for five for four days straight on the egg laying. I think they are feeling good about the new living situation.

    Welcome @Drea07.

    That building is to die for! Heavy one though...Yikes. I see some boards on the bottom would need to be replaced....but heck that's nothing! Good looking building.

    Ralphie...I'm jealous of your haul of eggs today. Today there were NO eggs at my place. not one single solitary one. I haven't had that since maybe December or January. What the heck?! Oh well. I stopped in at my friends and we candled her buff laced polish and my 2 CLB eggs. Movement in all the eggs. Saw a foot push up on the egg shell! Amazing. No pipping into the air sack yet. 2 more days.

    I saw a Timber Wolf cross to our side of the highway about a mile a way. That stuff always makes me nervous...but knock on wood we've been lucky in that regard not having those buggers visit. I also saw a flock of Wild Turkeys this evening. Always fun to see those guys.
