You know what you people have not seen in awhile. MY CHICKENS!
(Go ahead, Roll your eyes, I know you want to)
But, I also realize I had not showed you the coop that Manly built.
He claims that WE built it, but I don't really consider standing there and holding stuff, talking his ear off and fetching the wrong tools as
But, its so nice and sturdy and I don't have to worry about dogs breaking through because it was actually welded together.
First the girls:
The orange cord you see running into the roosting/nesting area is not a HD TV as you all are probably assuming, but for the uh, ahem, baby monitor.
Yes. I said baby monitor.
That way I can place the girls anywhere on our 2 acres and be able to hear if there is any thing trying to get to them.
It also lets me know when there is a fresh egg available, since they always make a fuss when they lay an egg.
Now, as you can see the coop is movable.
The black belting you see on the bottom (which is not really pretty to look at) but keeps animals from digging under the coop.
Now in the far left you see a dried up sage brush that blew in and someone really should have removed it before posting their yard to the world on her blog.
I am so thankful for Manly's talents. I caught myself a real winner. He can do anything AND he is so sweet to build me mini chicken fortresses.
Now, here are some other pics from my world.

There's snow in them there hills...
Hope you all are having a wonderful February so far.
