Me: "Everything is going to be okay. You can come out of the corner now".
Them: "Not on your tintype! Don't look at her, maybe it will all go away and we'll be back in our cold and wet pasture pen!"
Actually, they have come to the middle of the coop to eat and drink.... and Junior, the rooster in front, and one of the little white hens flew up to the nesting boxes.
The rest have been in the corner all day.
The nest boxes, all ready for some occupants. (Dream on, Mary Ann)
This is a shot of the ceiling. Keith build a heavy support system in there in case we decide to hang the feeders. We also have a bunch of birds who like to roost high up... and this should accomodate them. Also...the light was $38.00 or some ridiculous price, but it should last us until we die, or some incredibly long time. I think it was smart of Keith to do this and be so green!
These are on either side of the door into the coop from the feed room.
This cabinet will hold various feeders, etc., when not in use, also medicines, etc. We got a steel cabinet to hang on the wall, too, just above it. We have a large wood cabinet in the big henhouse that is actually a great cabinet, but has been home to thousands of mice in the last 8 years.
The northeast side has the feed cans and also, some more of the excellent organizers.
We still have a lot of construction debris to carry out... also... we need to put handrails on the stairs, a railing around the east deck... the "steps" on the chicken ramp, and put the shade net over the yard. Frankly, it's TOO COLD out today, though it did get up to 41 degrees fahrenheit about an hour ago.
We're old. We're tired.
I think I'll go out and look for the Thanksgiving bin to put the fall stuff away.
