Chaos at the Farm

Although it’s a billion degrees here, I’ve managed to grab an hour in the wee hours of the mornings to work on the new chicken yard. That isn’t giving me near enough time to finish this project anytime soon, but it coming along. The pen is up, shade cloth is half up, coop is raised and in place… but as you can see the barn area next to it is still a disaster.

For the first time my hens will have a covered area and afternoon shade. I have a water source there, and electric making chores somewhat easier. There is a plan to all this madness, the non-broody hens will live in the new housing so the moody broodies have a place of their own.

For a change I thought everybody would like to see the farm looking like a train wreck, if you know me at all… this is a rare occasion.

But wait, there’s more…  I almost forgot the other train wreck, this one is a bathroom renovation. What the cluck… my life is in total chaos!

  1. It’s a mess now, but everything is going to look amazing when the work is done. 🙂

    Hey, it was a hundred degrees in Denver today….yikes. We’re staying in the RV cocoon running the A/C. That bathroom remodel is looking good. Can’t wait to see the finished product. Keep clucking away 🙂

  3. I empathize with you regarding the heat. Even though I live far from the SW desert where you dwell, it is triple-digit HOT here in SW ID in the high desert area where I live. I add ice cubes to the waterers to “help” my cochin bantams cope with the heat. I also use shade cloth over their outside run area and have a fan inside the coop itself. It’s not perfect, but one can only do so much when it is HOT!

  4. Even your chaos looks orderly compared to most. Had to laugh at the “cluck.”
