My poultry empire groweth

I fully intended to downsize my flock, but the boys have all hung on tenaciously and there’s one poor rooster whose housing is simply unacceptable. It was okay in Summer when he could swan around a sunny garden all day, but completely inadequate for the long dark nights and biblical levels of rain we’re having.

This is the cheap little house I bought and it’s just right for one adult bantam. It’s due here tomorrow. I suppose I can always use it as a hospital pen or a way of introducing baby chicks to the flock.

No more roosters, ever again. Sadly. I’ve enjoyed my boys, but they are a helluva lot of extra effort.

I reckon this will just fit between my first house and my second, making a sort of chickenhouse city skyline. Though I’m mighty tempted to put wheels on one end and roll it around the garden. (Some of the really expensive ones do that).

Oh! I forgot Jerry Lee Lewis died last week and I promised you a Dead Pool this week. Okay, okay…queueing one up now…DEAD POOL TODAY.

Nice Coop. I made mine for 6 chickens and eventually 9 lived in it during the winter. They perform the run I attached to actually going into the coop during the summer.

With that said two other items:

Is there going to be a Deadpool tomorrow and did you get your email checked out. I know that my daughter tried to send you a note but not sure if you got it. (Lavendergirl)

Jerry Lee Lewis Died, then came back to life, and then died again.

HottyTottyGirl jumped in and snagged him for the win.

Last Friday around 6pm WBT.

That would be a $600,000 home in Silicon Valley.

No, I didn’t get an email from Lavendergirl – but I got the one I sent myself, so I assumed my email was working.

Okay, Dead Pool queued. Remember WBT is GMT – no shift in Winter.

Depending on its actual size, your chicken house could make a good play house for a kiddo. Might need a modification or two.
Could also make a good cat plaything. (Was going to say cat house, but…)

No, no…unless your kiddo is an elf, no. It’s a one-chicken house.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
