Nobody Here But Us Chickens

Stupid chickens.

The chickens haven’t even arrived yet, and I keep working on their little Chicken Ranch as if it were a palace waiting for a royal family. We’re waiting to populate the place until things calm down here a little bit. Good for the chickens, I suppose. The longer their little estate sits here, the more work I do on it, and the fancier it gets.

The latest installment – I remembered I had a pile of broken terracotta from the chimney sitting around, and I needed to line the bottom walls of the pen with something. Their chicken yard now features a terracotta border, and is coming pretty close to looking like someone’s fancy garden. And their are solar lights and a small panel on the roof of the coop!


And hey, by the way – Thanks for being here. I honestly had no idea that my little “slice-of-life” blog would be, well … much of anything. But we’re at about 25,000 visitors since I started here in March, and that’s pretty neat. Thanks! Visit often, and comment much – I love it when we get a dialogue going, and I’ve met some pretty awesome friends and neighbors here. It’s a great day at The Pines, and you have a great day too!
