  • ooo, excited!

    Oh, I have a coop design all picked out, and I have a raised 4x8 that I have been throwing compost material on, which I can connect to the run up the side of the yard. May have to wait till the whole money thing blows over

    • LOL.. true. Atwoods has a pretty good design that is portable (moving around the yard to get all the bugs), but we have some other ideas as well. I am actually excited about chickens. Mom is hot and cold on them. I think I am just going to have to take the initiative on it like the cooking.

      • friends of ours, have a coop that is stationary but the chickens have the run of a part of their yard that has a good canopy (protect against flying predators) and is surrounded by chicken wire to prevent intruders and escapes. They have 2 chickens now, one died, and they were getting 2 or 3 eggs a day, not sure now that it is colder. My grandmother kept chickens, but I sort of feel like they were egg layers in 3 seasons then became soup in the winter (they lived in PA.)

        • Most people have their chickens all over the place. I think the wings have to be clipped though. I would not mind mine out, you can train them to come in for the evening though.

          • I guess she clipped their wings because there is no cover on the run area.

            • yes. While they do not really "fly" they can and do roost. We have some big cottonwoods I would not like them roosting in. LOL

              • mmm, I need to do more research. I don't think I would bother if I can't let them have a run, because I want them to be able to eat bugs/worms/weeds, etc.

                        • ohmygosh.. the force pulling me to the donut shop was strong this morning. I resisted. I am a jedi-ette. I am also a dork. LOL

                          protein powder this morning in my coffee with some cheese on the side. Probably not enough protein but a better start than the alternative.

                          Struggles with Lil in the morning are tough although today was not as bad as the last 2 days.

                          A week and a half until Christmas break!

                            • Last night I think she could just feel ramped up and went and put the weighted neck and shoulder wrap on, then slept with it. I really think a weighted blanket will work wonders.
