    Regarding rain we leave it up to the girls to decide if they want to venture or not. I have two that can't wait to run into the mud puddles and one that stays in the coop until the last sprinkle stops and then comes out to forage. They're all different. I've seen videos and photos of chickens in the snow and some that only wanted to walk on the shoveled paths - they're all so different! You have done such a nice job and so FAST too!

    ok here is our setup, my dh is 81 and after this he said he needs to slow down that it is getting to much, sure so this morning he is talking about moving the screen house to back of house so we can see back yard and stay away from bugs, the screen house is next to the house. so tomorrow he will start thinking about that move, but don't forget he is going to slow down. he did make a path in the snow last year, but that is one thing I don't like him doing.

    At 72 my Mom was on her roof inspecting roof tiles, and rode the Colossus at Magic Mountain with her grandson! She worked until she was 85 before she retired from her last client - she WALKED to work - she walked everywhere since she never drove in her life and she loved to garden. Dementia slowed her down and she was getting aware that she couldn't remember things well. By 92 she moved in with one of her daughters and then total dementia and health care assistance moved her to a senior assistance center (not a convalescent hospital) where she continued until the good Lord took her home at 98! If it weren't for the dementia she would have continued being active walking around because health-wise she was still strong. Her philosophy was "I'll die if I stop working" so she was always busy baking, gardening, cleaning house, doing her own grocery shopping wheeling it home in a cart, walking to visit her sister on the same street. I should be so lucky to keep as fit - unfortunately our family females all inherited scoliosis or degenerative spine conditions since birth but still force ourselves to keep moving as Mom did! I'm so happy to see your DH and yourself keeping active!

    To install a chicken coop in your backyard, it is still better to check with your local council to find out how in your community and tell your neighbors to avoid any inconvenience.
    Remember: A prior request should be entered with your local council for poultry over 2m ² and 1.80 meters high.
    The processing time is about 30 days.Read more »

    If you buy $50 or more it's shipped free. I do an order each month of things that total up to over $50. I'm cheap that way. [​IMG] This is the only 3' that I could find with a good price. Most are 2'.
