We’ve been busy getting the little chicks new home ready for them. They are growing so fast. They have outgrown their little coup and are in need of a bigger home. We decided this building would work great for them. It was a metal shed we built several years ago to store the lawn mower in. It needed planks on the inside to keep it warm in the winter. The girls and I put them up Friday evening. Then this morning, we all went out and got started fixing the front. It now has a nice door and a window and is fully enclosed. All we lack now is making some nests for them and putting up the fence and building the gate. Okay, so that sounds like we lack quite a bit but we are one step closer now than we were yesterday. You can see one of the old hens in front of the house. They were so curious as to why we were blocking off the shed as it is one of their favorite places to take a dust bath.
Today was cool here. Temperatures were in the high 40’s-lower 50’s. We wore light jackets all day while we were working. We came in and ate supper. I knew today would be a long day outside working so this morning I put some pork in the crockpot and some pinto beans in another crockpot. All I had to do when we came in was fry some potatoes and make cornbread. I then decided to build a fire as it was about 60 degrees in the house. We are nice and warm now. There is just something very comforting about a wood fire. So relaxing.
I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.
I love the chick’s new home! You girls did a great job. Such a nice door too. I am keeping my eye out for an antique door on Craigslist. I want a pantry that looks like this http://18.104.22.168/p2h_magento/FindHomeFurnishings/shop/sale/pantry-cabinet-with-antique-door.html Just not that fancy. 🙂
Have a great Sunday!
What a great new home for the chicks. Ours will be moved out of the shop in about a week or so.
We were cold and had heavy coats on this morning, but by afternoon wearing short sleeves outside. Now we have a fire going in the living room stove.
Have a wonderful evening with your family.
The chicks are going to love their new home! I love a productive day. Not much happening outside this weekend as it as been cool and rainy.
Enjoy your Sunday!
Your crockpot meal sounds so yummy. You can’t beat pintos and fried potatoes. The pork just put it over the top. It was hot and dry here over the weekend. Your new chicken house is really nice. You did a great job!
