Today "Fort Chicken" was completed. Bob and I moved the chicks and their nursery out to the space we have been working on for weeks. Gate latches and locks were put on, furring strips around the top and posts over the ends of the chicken wire roof. Thursday they will be one month old. They weigh 10 times what they did the day we got them from the post office. Now to finish the design of the actual coop. My inner Martha has a strangle hold on me. So it will be beautiful as well as functional.

Is there such a thing as contented exhaustion?
|Rose bushes will be tightly planted along the front.|
Thanks for reading.
