    Aw what a pretty girl! I'd say she looks long-suffering (like our guy) rather than ferocious, but I suppose that's relative.

    Hehe, your boy looks very patient sitting there for the picture. Athena hates to sit still for pictures because it means she's to far away from me. I had to lock Zeus in the house to even get her to stay there for a moment.

    ETA, that feeder looks awesome that you have. I need something like that.

    You need to try our native WASHINGTON'S FAVORITE squash:

    Sweet Meats !!!!!!!!!!!!! It has more sugar than pie pumpkins or any other winter squash !
    It grows really well here & stores really well !
    Chickens LOVE them also !

    Spectrum is the brand at Freddie's. I bought 2 and have lasted about 6 months, but I also do FF so I go through more

    Wow, the roof over the run is finished and tarped over. Now it looks as if I will buy some rolled roofing and really finish it. It will look even better with some white rolled roofing.
    It worked out really well. My gals can have sunshine in the run (depending on time of day) from mid morn til late afternoon, but not all at once. Since they free range in the afternoon it works out well. No more sticky, soggy, stinky mud. Whoot!
    Last 4 days I have gotten an avg of 6 eggs from my 8 gals. "not too shabby" said he, as the pat on the back continued unabated. (as if he had anything to do with the actual laying of said eggs)

    Note to CR. Thanks for the tip on the honey thing. Tried that with Wallyworld brand of honey and guess what? Honeycomb configurations occured. [​IMG]
