So our yard and coop are going to be on this year's Growing Gardens Tour de Coop here in beautiful Portland Oregon! Aside from finishing the building of the second run, including the Speedway (a tunnel from one coop to the other) and diigging a pond for the ducks. We are really dialing in the rest of thhe yard. I also had a huge load of tree clipping mulch dumped in our front yard to fill in a nice bedding to scratch through in the second run. Today, I set to work writing biographies for all 23 chickens, 2 ducks and 2 pheasants. 4 hours and 6 pages later, I think I have just about enough for the scapbook I am going to have on hand for folks to read about the breeds, egg production, origin and personalities of each bird. I just need to get the pictures together to go with the write-ups. I told the DH about it when I finished and he called me, quote "a humungatoid nerd" I'm a little proud of that, thank you very much.
