Too much for me and the chooks

Thankfully it is not cold but it is raining, good for the seedlings but not the greatest for me and the chooks!

The poor things have decided to gaurd the nest they made under the rose bush again, rain or not. I also gave away the rooster so the eggs won’t even be fertile, the silly chooks.

I had planned on today being “moving day” for them as i only have the gate left to put on their new home and run, i just didn’t want to get drenched myself. “One more night to go chooks”

And for me the muggy rain means a lot of moisture is still in the air, so the clay projects from the class are very slow at drying.  The water can’t evaporate into wet air, mid summer is another story with trying to slow it down.

Tiny home….

Making a little bit of progress on the chooks new tiny home.

I want to have a bit of fun with this one and i might just paint it some crazy fun colours and make it into some garden art.

The tongue and groove roof is on now and i almost want to move into it myself, with its three stories, cozy nesting box, sheltered roosting balcony, pitched roof and rustic looking staircase!

Next little bit done was putting some old retro patterned lino on the roosting deck and closed in the nesting box. Hopefully i can just get the hose onto the lino to clean.

I wish i had the stamina to do it all in one go because at this rate it will end up being their new summer home when it was meant to be their new winter home. Plus i can’t wait to decorate it for them 🙂
