|Our cornstalks made it to the coop.|
|A bit more needed: paint and TLC to pretty it up.|
Chickens are animals that pattern. Our girls outgrew their old "lean to" and I removed it from the yard. However, they still sleep in the same place the former coop was. They all bunch together against the wall. They could go into the coop at night on their own, but noooooo. The 4 Australorps that came later figured it out immediately, and have been sleeping in there on the small ladder from the get go. So Bob and I have been going out in the dark with flashlights and putting them inside for the last 2 nights. They are huddled together, and can't see at all in the dark. We put them in the coop which still has the light on. They blink their eyes as they adjust, and stagger across the floor.
|The shade provided from roses doubles as a tasty snack when spent!|

|Can you see the love in Tallulah's eyes?|
|Ester who lays eggs as she walks around!|
