    Probably. Although since she is going through a stage where she likes to hide and poop in her diaper and play in it or share it with her little sister 15 sounds almost welcoming, lol. I so plan on embarrassing her with stories of what she's when she's older. [​IMG]

    Just too funny ~ I have them on my watch list too along with a few others I will bid on & see if I don't get outbid [​IMG] I just hatched 2 Lavender orps & 3 White orps. I am doing a photo shoot this morning of all my new babies & my older ones progress! Prepare yourself for cuteness [​IMG]

    They're up to 51 bucks!! Holy Crap!

    Ok, you have to use your imagination... The part on the right is the house portion. It's laying on the roof right now. It sits on the part on the left which is basically just a box frame. But he used 1/2 inch hardwire around the whole thing. It's very secure. But I didn't have time to work on it so my dad left it on the trailer.


    [​IMG]


    And then this is the corner that I'm going to put it in. I have to move all my dad's fence posts and a few barrels that he was taking to scrap. But that tree right there is a wild cherry tree. Perfect!! I'm so excited that my dad is letting me do this. (Without me just doing it and asking later.) [​IMG]

    Anyway, this is the corner of 2 buildings, so that's all sheet metal on 2 sides for added security. And there's no way to dig under because the garages are on concrete slabs. Super safe.

    [​IMG]


    this is the view behind the chicken coop... Wow. Just look at that pond there... Do you see any ducks? Why no... no you don't.. Not yet. Bwah ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    [​IMG]


    Ok that's all. I should have taken a pic of it all set up before we detached it. My dad was really getting into it though, giving me newer ideas to make it bigger to house more chickens. [​IMG] Daddy's girl, what can I say.

    I've got a lot of work to do on Sunday. I can't wait!!

    I have my first PIP for the New Year's Day Hatch (chicks, no duckies [​IMG] ). [​IMG] But it's one of my own banty eggs. The eggs I bought don't look too good, so I'll have to wait and see. Glad I put some of my own in . . . at least the whole hatch shouldn't be a bust.
