    Morning Rachel and Team,

    Rachel, sounds like you had a pretty good Sunday. Sometimes it's good to have our brains stretched. And congrats on the new little fuzz butts!

    Hope everyone has a good Monday [​IMG]

    Rachel, check out my last couple of posts on the Sex linked thread. It may match what you're looking for in leg color.

    Thanks for the good reading... we are away but wanted to check in..
    The no waste gravity feeder I had built used a 90° curved 3" pvc elbow with a 45° angle cut of about .5 cut off on the bottom inside opening. If you think it through the reason behind the curve makes sense. So the chicken comes to eat, reaches in and down, grab mouthfuls then as she pulls back up the extra drops back into the bucket. The other reason for the curve and the cut is when you pour the feed into the bucket it comes down around the pipe and around to the bottom. This leaves space for the food to be at the bottom but other critters (ie. rats, mice, snakes) can not reach in. Does that help? If not, when I get back home and see my girls, I will take a photo.
    Blooie, Sorry about the fog. Joe it was still worth the memories!
    Ok, Outpost JWB... what construction? I don't remember..can you share?
    Hope all here get some good sleep.

    At least, I think it's morning. One of those "wake up waaaaay too early" mornings for me. At least it gives me a chance to catch up on all the BYC news.

    Hope you all have a great day. As for me, I see a nap in my future, lol.

    Sure, We have a doublewide trailer on block and 3 acres of land. The house had sat empty for over a year before we bought it 2 years ago. The past 2 winters the pipes under our home have busted. They have made holes in the floors so they can access the pipes. Usually people can crawl in the crawl space....but ours has stayed flooded. Water has been absolutely nuts here. Rain, snow, flooding, plus the occasional busted pipes. We have not had time or money to put work into the place. Months after buying the place, the sewage inspector came out and we failed inspection. That was a pretty penny to fix.

    Our subfloors are pieces of patches in 3 rooms. Also our patio door has not been working for 6 months. It will not slide at all. We have a hammer next to it just in case there is a fire. Because it will NOT open. So we are also getting that fixed. There is much more work to be done. I'll try to get before and after pics of everything and keep you all updated. Here is a pic of our back screened in porch. The patio door leads from the house to the porch. It has not been used hardly at all this year. Stinks. That's my favorite room.

    Patio door is to the left of this picture.

    You all have a great day. I need to get some cleaning done before work. Contractors will be here today.[​IMG]

    @Outpost JWB I sure like the size of your porch. It looks like a good place to relax.

    We have a screened porch on the front of our house and use it all the time (but it's not near as large as yours [​IMG]).

    Outpost, maybe when you get the doors fixed, you can replace them with french doors. I have always had a strained relationship with sliding doors. if anything settles a tiny bit, they lock up. At least with two doors, there is a chance one will open, or you can remove the hinge bolt and still have an opening.

    It has been so rainy here. wet wet wet.

    Thanks for sharing Outpost. It sounds like quite a bit of work! Dislike sliding glass doors for that reason. I will pray for it to be done well and timely and at a reasonable cost.
    A nap sounds great! See you... zzz
