Miscaculation and Many Projects

This past week you may have noticed an absence of my posts… well hubby and I took off some time from work to get projects done around the house and in the yard. We had a lot of help from our Supervisor Chase…

He made sure things were done up to his standards πŸ˜‰ The first project we tackled was the kitchen floors. The old floor was lament and in bad shape in some areas…

Some of the old floor to the left under the new floor we put down…

So we replaced it with a new ceramic floor…

The boys on the new floor

Then hubby got sick for a few days so the next big project we put off until this past weekend when my mom and her husband could come help. Our old chicken run had been blown down/apart by all the bad winds this past year. The girls were in need of a new safer run. We had built them a house out of some old rabbit hutch’s and they love them as they are off the ground and have plenty of space for 10 chickens. I made a plan to build the coop to be 16 ft long by 8 foot high and wide…

So if you didn’t catch that 8 foot tall… hubby is almost 6 foot so I wanted to make sure he didn’t have to bend or hit his head like he did on the last coop. So I made it a little tall… oh well.

The girls seem to love their new home and are spending more time in the new run then they did in the old one. We plan to add some roosts on the sides and place to store things as well as tarp’s or siding for this winter so the run is safe and dry.

I wanted to update you on our girls too especially our hurt girl. She is getting better and gaining some needed weight…

The lady who was hurt

Compared to the other girls she still hasΒ some weight to gain, but we are happy she is alive and accepted back into her flock/brood πŸ™‚

Other than that while we were on our staycation (a stay at home vacation) I got some canning done, magazines read, and cleaning done. For dinner tonight we had my Baxter’s Potato Kale Chowder. It was so yummy and made my migraine better. That should bring you up to date… have a good rest of the week πŸ™‚

    Sounds like you had a delightful stay-at-home vacation. I know I always feel good when I feel like I’m “keeping up with things” around the house and farm. I’m sure your chickens love their new home!

    Hej from Sweden !
    Glad your husband is better. Sometimes you just need to stop and actually set time aside to get projects done or else they really never do get done. Good for you. Love the chicken enclosure. Your ladies will be so happy, I am sure.

    Eight feet – I think that’s smart. If you do make some high up roosts, if a fox gets in, they’ll have a good chance of getting out of reach.
