Chook Ladder

This was me today trying to lure chooks to their new digs, one worked it out but had a bit of trouble with rungs being too far apart, so a few more rungs were needed,  thanks to my brother weilding the hammer.


It is surprisingly frustrating not to be able to hammer a nail in..such a basic thing and i am missing it, and of course not being able to wedge any clay just adds insult to injury!

That should keep the Baxter out of their pottery chook feeder.

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 🙂

A little bit done on the nesting box and top storey, while they played.

Update: Trying to pick myself up and re-focus and what do I see? A little bit of a chook comb poking into the right hand side of the picture above…the chook was checking up on my progress 🙂
