    The little girls were getting sooo crowded in their guinea pig cage (in the background of the photo), but coop completion is still probably a week away, so we had to figure something out for them in the meantime. Luckily we had a big doggie playpen in the attic from when our dog Lily was a puppy. I cut a cheap party tablecloth in half and duck taped where they overlapped, and the chicks now have a new home! They're on a screened in porch, so no worries about critters bothering them. They're enjoying their new space! Lots of room to run and practice flying!

    Now that's using your noggin! I like to use those dirt cheap table cloths as 'poop boards'. So easy to roll up and transport the poop in the garden.
