    Well, my wife gave me an ultimatum that the chickens needed to move outside by today; the coop is not quite done, but they were making a royal mess inside:
    The coop still needs to be shingled, a ramp, and a few other minor things:
    And the girls are not thrilled about their new home... everyone's huddled in a nesting box:
    But the good news is... Bruno's keeping a good guard:

    Great job!! They will settle in. [​IMG] Mine now know it's home !!! Waited until my day off, to move mine, to see them in their new surroundings, so I know how special moving day can be!!!

    I'm skeptical about Bruno's guarding abilities [​IMG] Your coop is adorable! Will it sit where it is, or be placed on a platform?

    I'm in love with Bruno. I think he needs a California vacation at my casa! Oh, back to chickens, I love the coop too! They'll get used to things.
