The last of these two guys bit the dust this morning. She starting looking sick the other day. Poor thing. She was a good little egg layer and very sweet.
The other one got eaten by a coon several months ago. Such is the circle of life, Mufasa.
As I mentioned earlier, things they be a changin’.
Built a new wall that faces the house. Not so much classic green as before. Going to be using that clear Tuftex poly. Mmmm, Fresh stain. Morgan hooked me up with some free salvaged windows. (Thanks, Buddy!) Yeah, that sun may not exactly be in the perfect spot but it will do for now.
Fresh paint on the new windows.
I know what you’re thinking. “Everything looks so worn out!” Oh yeah, it sure does. The more, the better!
Now that its warming up enough to bring the porch plants outside, we are in the middle of a Hillbilly Jungle Machine renovation. I got Wyatt to tear down the north wall of classic green fiberglass. No one in the family really liked the green. Something about it being an eye sore. Whatever, I kind of like that retro look. We are replacing that wall with salvaged tin roofing panels, three windows and some of that more appealing corrogated clear poly sheeting. There will be a shelf under the windows to put pots and such. Photos to come.
Daddy called me Saturday to let me know Tractor Supply Co. finally had baby chicks ready to sell. Hot dog! I called to find out what kinds they had. They said, “We have red pullets.” I guess they didn’t know what breeds they had. We drove over on Tuesday and purchased 15 new girls. 5 Rhode Island Reds, 5 Red Sex Links and 5 Golden Comets. They are all very healthy and extremely cute.
