    Well what a long time coming this was, 2 yrs but now i've finally finished
    My Little girl and I picked up 4 Barnevelders from Julie and Paul of Country Chickens today
    Well the Girls are 12 weeks old (1 might be a week older) and are pure breed Pullets
    Paul was fantastic with my little girl (she's 2 1/2) and took us to see the parents and then into the barn to show us the day olds, 2 week olds and 4 week olds
    To say my little girl Lilly was excited was an understatement

    The girls seem to be settling in well but time will tell
    The auto window was fitted today ........... yes i did say an auto window .......... I fitted a auto greenhouse vent opener (cost $15 on Ebay) to one of the coop windows ......... it starts opening at 15 degrees C (59 F) and is fully open at 35 degrees C (95 F) and it started opening as it should today

    Heres the coop and run
    I'll clean the mess up in front of the run tomorrow

    And here are my Girls ........... Like a proud dad i am

    And My Lillte Pink Chicken

    Next step is to make raised garden beds in front and on the side, these will wicking beds and i will grow vegetables and herbs for us and the girls
