Nine days left until we hopefully have chicks! I candled them on Monday night and at that time we had TEN eggs doing well. Ten! I'm so excited. And a little terrified. We'll see how it goes.
I Red-Greened a baby birdie brooder box. Note the elaborate cardboard hinges and the too-long screws poking out the top. I am leaving them as an anti-cat deterrent. If all ten hatch, I think this will work for the first week or two. After that, we'll see.
I also made some serious headway into building an external nest box on the coop.
Turns out I really like woodworking. I'm having way too much fun with this project. There's something really fantastic about actually building something and having a physical structure to prove what you've done with your day.
