Well the Coop has its first new residents! We moved the Guineas into it yesterday. The hut isn't quite done and we still need to run some chicken wire around the bottom to keep the chicks in once they are put it. Hopefully today or tomorrow. But the Guineas are large enough that they can't fit through the fencing, so they moved in first. Been so busy we just can't seem to get it all done.
They were very happy to be out in their new home. Loved the grass, but I think the dirt was really their favorite... Always thought it was odd that rolling in the dirt can make the animals feel so good... makes me want to head in and take a bath.
Here is a photo of the coop...
It actually was before we finished the top cover, and put the concrete blocks around the edge. Keep critters from digging in or the birds from getting out. I am sure Hubby would love me saying how "WE" finished... LOL I did help with the roof a tiny bit.
The chicks were watching out the window... I think we get to move in next is what they were saying...
They have grown a ton haven't they? They are so fun to watch.
I took all these photos at breakfast yesterday morning. So most wouldn't even acknowledge me... Lina wouldn't look at me, but she was interested in making sure that "Dad" wasn't going to throw in more hay that might be better than what she had.
Frank on the other hand had decided that the best thing to do with his breakfast was keep it warm....
So his hay was serving as a cozy morning bed until he was hungry. He is a funny guy.
And here is funny as well.. Niner one of the outside dog had just woken up.
It was a long night of barking at the moon the night before so he slept in... I think this is a stretch, a yawn and a "What's for breakfast?" all at once. LOL
The boys in their pen were really enjoying their morning meal.
Pavo for a split second was thinking about coming over to the fence for a good morning, but then went back to eating. Wouldn't want the hay to spoil now would we?
As I was heading back into the house I found Tuco watching the donkeys in one of the pen.
I have no clue what he had gotten into or why he is wet. He is a boy for sure, loves to get into things. But he is also one very handsome Toy Australian Shepherd. In some photos you would never know he is only 12 inches tall. LOL
Alright... errands, Post Office, Grocery Store, Hardware Store, Bread Store then home to get things packed up for next weeks antique show... Better get going! Hope you have a wonderful Saturday and hug something furry!
