Getting Closer!

We are getting closer!  I like the layout with the roost and the nesting boxes.  I want to replace the plastic tubs with a DB under the roost and figure out some way to make the nesting boxes more private (if you have any suggestions please leave a comment!)  I also want to put a hinge on the top of the ladder so I can get to the DB easier OH and I have to fill in all the cracks/holes whatever you'd like to call them.  Hubby and I are NOT carpenters and we use a LOT of 1 x 2's to cover up the mistakes. 

I've talked my Husband into installing (some would call) windows... what they REALLY are are 1/2 of a window which I'll have propped up with cute white sticks during the day instead of finishing off with plywood!  We'll make a trip to town tomorrow for my DR visit and pick them up.  They cost $5 to $7 a piece.  I figure we'll need 7 or 8 plus I want one to make a chalk board with for the homestead. I'll make sure to post photos of both my windows and chalk boards.

I'll wrap up the post with a few photos I took of Hubby today....

Hubby feeding Elvis the rooster mealworms. 

He's talking to them now :)

Wish me luck looking for my windows tomorrow!  Have a great day.

I'm linking up to a blog hop or few
