    Good to see you back on here!!! The rain is sooo nice!



    On another note, the other day I was worried our girls aren't being held enough to get "used to" humans. They are still very very flighty at 6 weeks old. So our neighbor's son and daughter wanted to come over. They wanted to go inside the coop. My thought was SCORE! So I told them if they pick up a chicken they have to hold each one for at least 5 minutes each. I had 3 kids (including my daughter) and then myself holding 15 chickens for a least 5 minutes each for an hour! I was thinking to myself, "I need to have these kids over more often!"

    I know. The woman I work for raises chickens for pilgrims pride. I went down there with her this morning. She has 24,000.

    I read some good things about this design and how it helps stop wasteing food! I'm going to be building one of these here soon. I'm also going to be picking one of these up (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Oatey-1-1-2-in-Plastic-Mechanical-Test-Plug-33400/100342630#.UZPF58oTSTt) to put down in the bottom to keep food from setting in the bottom of the wye.


    Babies!! So exciting :D Haha, I'm currently in baby chick swoon mode with the 6 I have haha. They are growing up fast. What kind of chicks are you getting?

    Thanks for that link! That's really awesome! I have yet to use mine, but I figured I'd try it out and then if I decide I want a different design go with something else.
