Snowball was found this morning looking at my little ones Christmas list!
Chicken coop is DONE!!! It still needs paint and I'm sure we will have a few things to change. It's three levels and we didn't get it done until late last night, so I put the birds (two by two) into the top roost area. This morning only one was brave enough to stand on the ramp so I put them (one by one) into the bottom open area. I hope they start exploring today and visit the second floor nest boxes and then find their way back to the top floor roosts or I will once again have to put them (two by two) into their roosts. I am hoping by the end of the week they can venture out into the yard and will then put themselves up at night. My little one who used to be an outdoors girl has been petrified of our yard since our rooster Larry chases her anytime she comes out. She now spends most of her time indoors and when she's out has anxiety. I think the time has come to just have only sweet ladies in the yard. We have about eight roo's that need to be sent to freezer camp and that still leaves us with four (for now)!!!! Time was against us this weekend and the hubs is back to work so I'm hoping this coming weekend we will stock the freezer. It will be much safer for the little chickies to come into the yard without the boys although some of the big girls can be rough with the little chicks, I guess it's the pecking order business. I will take pics once it's all done ☺
