All Cooped out






This past weekend was a great FAMILY weekend, where I arrived home Wednesday evening and for the next 4 days was nothing but family and BUILDING. See, a few weeks ago, I posted a picture of our new chicks.. yes - Airstream Camping Chicks Steve!! These things have grown and needed a place outside... vice our front porch. So, last weekend, I built the base and scavenged old silo boards, and this weekend, I built the coop....a carpenter I'm not.. but it's only a coop! We even put the old SOTR drawers to good use - they are the chickens new nesting boxes. So, check it out! Ah, there sits the 54 Safari - one day that'll be back on the road!!! We are now getting ready for Thursday; Zoe' and the boys will be having special Courtesy Parking guests - on their way to the VTJ ...man am I going to be jealous to not be there! Check out our Guard cat... as she sits there licking her lips looking for a way into the coop... Enjoy.

Better get some chicken wire up in the eves. I found that one out the hard way when we lived on StoneHouse Road. The chickens got out and made nests in my toolboxes. Those little layers are pretty good flyers!

Good that you bought some "girls" to keep the boys busy while your gone. Which one gets the "chicken chores" this week... not Mom, I hope. Looks great!
