Still raining here too - need to get the new little coop delivered but no chance of that in this weather! It's been solid rain all day, the past week actually. Right now it's raining so hard the back yard looks like a lake even at night. Enough! Some of the flowers I planted are rotting in the ground.

I just read in the newsletter of the Texas and SW Cattle Raisers Association that over the long term rainfall is increasing in the US. Some of you may find that a lot easier to believe than we do here. So far this year we have had less than 2" of rain - total - and most of that was in January.

Inside,I found this paint at a thrift store think I will do the walls in it to,its called eggshell.The ceiling will be white.This angle is looking in the green entance door,the gate is where the old entrance door was and the little one is where the silkies will come in from the exsisting run.The outside poop door was already there on the other side of the white wall and led into a cage on the floor so we didn`t have to cut another hole in the coop.They have ventured into the cage part but not into the big room.We still have 10 pieces of pressed board to put on the walls and ceiling then we will be done.Was hoping to have this done before the baby silkies hatched under the broody in the little coop so she could have the whole coop for her and the babies untill they got a little bigger.Today is hatching day for her,she has 13 eggs hope the all hatch.
