Rub a Dub Dub, Two Toddlers in a Puddle

OK, not very good, but it was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this.

At least there were “boating” and not just splashing around in that icy puddle.

I didn't get as much work done last weekend as I had wanted, but I did manage to put an “egg door” onto the back of the coop.  This allows us to collect any eggs that our chooks may have left for us in the nesting boxes, without letting them out of the coop proper.

We've also been progressing the coop up past the back side of the pole barn, which necessitated digging the side off of a little hill that was back there, and completely blocking any further movement of the coop past the back of the pole barn.

Something interesting I've noticed as I've moved the hoop coop is that the chooks seem to have a somewhat designated restroom corner.  Oh, they're not 100% on only depositing fertilizer in that one corner like I understand pigs are, but there's been a definite concentration in a specific corner of the coop.  That's not something I've read about in any of the chicken books I've read.

We still haven't seen any eggs, though as I said, I'm not really expecting any at this point until spring.
