Mr Wonderful had begun building a framework for a chicken house last weekend. He was a Chicken Scoffer, now turned Chicken Fanatic! At days' end on Sunday, he said if anyone ever would have said he would be building a chicken house, he would have called them a liar! Funny how life 'happens', huh?? Click pictures to avoid eye strain!
We were working away very diligently, and those poor young Corgi girls had way too much time to do as they pleased! The older girls took naps in the shade after romping after chipmunks and such. In the pic below, Dixie has just realized that perhaps there is fun to be had if she can sneak away and run rampant with her pal, Sassy! They're OFF!!!
They ran crazy wild for most of the day, doing as they pleased, swimming in their turtle pool, and having their BIG FUN! They only got scolded when they tried to steal some of the small trim boards we needed for the sides of the chicken house - little scamps!!!
And lest you think I don't help out on these big projects Mr. Wonderful works on just for me, here's proof that I don't just stand and point my finger at the things he might have missed!
Besides the fancy Cordura roofing, he even added a couple of small details - special for ME! Too Cute!
A Star to mark the main entrance for the girls....AND - - -
Custom made SHUTTERS! How neat is THAT!!!We got the chooks settled in. They are no longer second class citizens - they have their very own Home Sweet Home!
They gave it a hearty 'Once Over', several times, that is, before they decided it was up to "CODE".
And, lookie lookie - who is so TIRED!!! You would think those good for nothin CORGIS did all the work!!!
The Master Builder surveys his completed project, and is pleased that the chooks love their new cottage! Indeed, they feel comfortable and safe.
And their cozy cottage has an "Old Tyme" appeal - a pretty nice style chicken house! Perhaps he should offer some of these for sale locally, now that he has it down to a science? Hmmm- what a thought!
