    Testing to see if I figured out the photo posting thing - wanted to get it right before an emergency of any kind where photos might be crucial.
    Meet BJ and Annie and their Accomodations [​IMG]
    Sorry in advance if the photos come out huge - I'll know as soon as I post!!

    BJ and Annie have a little house inside a larger stone building. The run enters the larger building - you can see their little chicken sized opening to the run just to the right of the little red chair against the wall with the sunflower painted above it. That opening is closed at night, of course...

    They have run of the larger building except at night when they are tucked in their inner sanctum, (when it's really hot - as it has been - I leave the doors to their little house open for extra air flow but the larger building is locked....this way they get extra ventilation and I can aim more fans toward them).

    Their coop is insulated (and covered with that blue stuff), has a window opening onto a window in the larger building, and it has a skylight that is right below a skylight in the larger building. This way they get enough light when they are inside.

    You are all so kind - thank you.

    I don't know exactly what kind of roo BJ is. He showed up out of nowhere about 7 years ago, is gentle and brave and incredibly sweet to Annie, and Betty (RIP) before her. I never tire of looking at his exquisite feathers [​IMG]

    ibpboo, it sure did change my life!

    Vicki, Brenda, thanks very much! You are very generous. Took me long enough to get around to the photo thing Brenda! [​IMG]
    I was supposed to be working on a difficult project this morning having to do with a badly planned and executed development next door that is greatly damaging my property - it's an exhausting situation - and so I created a diversion by deciding to learn the photo posting thing - at least that's one thing I can cross off the "To Do" list!

    I was trying to get ready for a talk I had to run to Philly to give - Annie decided at that moment to become a lap chicken
