    Here it is as it stands now

    I need some designs for the nesting boxes. The inside of the house will be divided in half. With nesting boxes opening to the people side. I have 25 girls, although at least one of them is looking more and more like a roo. He is my favorite one too. I get a lot of joy out of these little guys. They eat everything and are so friendly. Scott would have approved. A friend of mine helped me set up a dog run on top of an old tarp inside my garage while their coop is being worked on. Thank y'all for being so helpful. I am so not handy and this has been such hard work. I hired a roof man and he has shown up one day and said he would be here three. I also have a friend who said he would come in and set the other two windows for the house. I have a lot of painting left to do. But it's been nice to be busy. I know it won't be finished to Scott's standards but I do hope to get it done. Here's a pic of the "girls" waiting for their new home.

    I am so sorry about your husband. He would be very proud of the work you have done. It is beautiful. I only wish mine looked that nice. You should name it after him like "Scott's Place" or something like that...just a thought. But you are doing a wonderful job. You are still in my prayers.

    Thanks for the update. I'm so glad that you are getting it finished. That's something to be very proud of in itself. Scott would be proud of you, I'm sure. Keep up the good work and we are looking so forward to the girls move in pics.
