The Chicken Taj.

Well not sure what it says about us, but we have a Chicken Habitat in our front yard. Hey, It's Easter this week anyway. My plan is to move it to the garden/goat yard this weekend. Still need to do a few things inside, like feed and water stations and an outside security fence. 

Chief architects and builders: Judd & Kipp , (we had a single pencil and scratch paper between us.)
Construction: old 1" Cedar fence  reclaimed
Stained Glass Window: Kipp's  ( my window, heat gun and, crayola's. --His Talent)
Whole Window wall is removable.
Inside decorations and paintings of  Colonal Sanders, by Debi's Rabbit. (wants egg production)
Copula's and small windows, built from scratch..
Wooden vents were  old shutters taken off our house when we painted
Copula's roof is Copper Foil.

The feeders are great and cost about $4. 4" PVC Tee, cut out, plugged up and a 2 liter bottle in the top . Most of the idea was plagiarized from "Dine-a-Chook" from Australia.

The waterer's are chicken nipples . Clean and saves on waste and cleanness.

They can move in as soon as all the feathers are on them.

So we planned a bike trip with our friends the Metge's on the Hiawatha Trail but it was still covered in snow so we changed directions and went north to the Canadian Sunshine Coast. And guess what we HAD sunshine really it was great. So here are a few pictures. How was the trip well I will sum it up in just a few words, 14 thousand elevation total gain for a 6 day trip!!!!!

Looking Forward to Spring and Summer

Well we have almost made it through the winter. And it wasn't so bad, as our family would say. We are now getting ready for the spring and summer months when we are very busy. At least this summer we don't have a whole house to paint. We just made our reservations for Grandkids Summer Camp. The menu is set and most of the activities we plan on doing. But before all that I want to redecorate the inside of my home. New paint, curtains, carpet, update family wall. Maybe paint a mural on a wall or two. Just wanted everyone to know we are alive and doing well.

What can I say it doesn't matter what time of year I'm at the beach I must enter into the surf!!

Fall Is In The Air

We have been really busy in the yard actually Kipp was busy in our yard. Kipp, Haruka and Max came to visit and attend Kipp's grade school buddies wedding. But we got a lot of work out of him while he was here. He did most of the great grape stake fence around our raised bed garden and the posts for the beehive fence.
