    [​IMG] Things are progressing really slowly on the coop, and the chicks are already 5 weeks old... I think I'll be building them a temporary coop until the big one is finished, it's because of the bees and wasps I tell you!

    Bees and wasps... ha, ha... yah, right! [​IMG]

    I understand where you are... our first batch of chicks were three months old (living in the living room!!!) before we got their coop/run finished enough to move them out to it. That's one of those things I learned the hard way.... have your coop/run built BEFORE you get the chicks. They grow so fast!

    Quote:LOL we weren't anticipating the various stinging insects! Plus it rained for about 2 months straight.
