Here you can see I got the plywood shutters on over the chicken wire.
|Shutters on the coop|
Here you can see the plywood shutters I made on the long side, so I can prop them open for ventilation or if the weather is really nasty, like when it snows in the winter, I can close them.
It's been a lot of work the last two days getting things this far. I have tomorrow off, so I'll be working on the nest boxes, a door big enough for me to crawl in if ever necessary and the roof.
|chicks hatched July 20.2012|
And this evening I said goodby to the cute little chicks. They are going to a great home with 3 adorable young ladies who were very excited to have them!
And in other news it looks like I may have duck dinner quicker than I had planned. There are definitely too many Muscovy drakes and 2 of them are pulling the feathers of several other ducks and making them bleed. So they shall soon be dinner!
