Almost done with the coop

In 3 weeks the chicks have gone from this...

To this...

YIKES! right?  At this point the Cornish Rocks can be butchered and be called a "Cornish Hen".  We are going to let them get bigger and uglier. They will be in the freezer or table in 4-5 weeks. The Amerucaunas are very friendly and fun to watch.  In addition we have 15 chicks coming this week.  Possibly tomorrow very early in the morning!  Apparently the post office likes them gone as soon as they come in which could be 6 am.  Good thing we only live 1/2 a block from the post office.

Scott has been working hard in the sun, wind, rain, sleet and snow to get the outstide coop done.  It's basically ready for chicks we just need the weather to cooperate.  But with a Winter Storm (in late April!!)headed our way, all will have to sit tight for a while.  We'd like to paint the inside of the coop but the weather has to warm up.  Can you hear me Mother Nature? While we wait, the plans for the run outside the coop are being put on paper.
