Happy Birthday Aunt Kathy!
The girls came to TFL today. They chilled in a cardboard box till I got the pen sealed up. Added chicken wire around the parameter, some additional bits so I could apply the bird netting over the top then rigged a rope and pulley so I can open and close the door from outside. BTW...the back side of the coop opens so I can clean and collect eggs someday. Their foster mom thinks they will start laying in September. The new arrivals spent their first few hours hiding under the coop. Had to go out at twilight and chase them into their new overnight space. I think they get it now. Carl knows somethings happening but I don't think he has actually seen them yet. Not gonna let them "mix it up" till the girls get a little older. 78,91,66,0,W,0
