Well, it was another very long and very hot day Saturday. We had good intentions to finish the coop; chicken wire and cloth around the bottom of the run, paint, hang the sliding door, put on the roof, and run shade cloth along a section of the roof, etc. We also wanted to weed, water the garden, clean out the camper, and tiki hut and mow the 2-1/2 acres. It's kinda like looking at a buffet line, your eyes are bigger than your stomach! The heat slowed down our steps considerably and we didn't get all the things done we wanted, so we headed back out to the torture chamber on Sunday. So now, we only have to hang the shade cloth and sliding door, build them their roost and nesting boxes. That'll be next weekends project.
The Hooligan's are growing much faster than I had anticipated. They're in the "ugly" stage at the moment. We've had them for almost 3 weeks. As soon as they are all feathered out, the stinky little buggers will be heading to their new coop at the Compound.
