    Got home this morning to find that the bunny tractor I had ordered in the mail had arrived! Grabbed a drill and put it together super speedily so I could get the girls outside. I'm sure they were ready for it after spending a month in a rubbermaid tote. Needless to say they were super happy to be outside, but couldnt decide if they wanted to play tag or bask in the sun more! They're happily chattering to themselves outside my window now.

    Love that little coop. I might have to do some shopping soon.

    Yep, I thought it was pretty cute for a growout pen or a broodie house. Google "ware backyard hutch" and then do a little shopping. They seem to retail for right around a hundred but you can find them on sale for closer to 80. The latch they come with is a silly plastic heart, but you can pick up a barrel style lock for 3 bucks at the hardware store!
