Well, we had a very short Spring here, and Summer has hit with a vengance…even the chickens have been feeling the heat! Actually, it’s not the heat as much as the humidity. Needless to say, it’s not the best time for my poor hubby – Greg – to be sweating his brains out, doing construction work, in this kind of weather. And, since we need this coop to be done yesterday, he’s been pushing himself really hard…Here’s what the coop looks like now…

Also, I forgot to post a picture of Pumpkin yesterday…He’s very camera-shy!

My hens are not used to laying their eggs in a nesting box…they lay them will-nilly wherever they want, so I am trying to teach them that “It’s a Good Thing” to use a nest of some sort…It’s slow going, however…
