I am now in Upstate New York and planning on starting all over again! Since we are still renting I'm going to have to wait on the donkeys and goats for a while... Bummer...

I was really getting tired of Pani's little dog crate house, so I decided to turn the old table saw table that we had into a little mini-coop for her! I used the old metal table frame, some scrap plywood, some roofing paper, old tin sheeting and a piece of semi transparent fiberglass... I think it came out pretty nicely! Eventually I'm planning on using this for a "Silkie Love-Shack!" so I thought the love bird artwork was fitting. (As is the tin roof... if anyone remembers the lyrics to "Love Shack"!!)
The other chicks love to nap underneath the mini-coop. They spend a lot of time under there in the afternoon when the sun is shining from that direction.
When I started this blog I lived in Western Pennsylvania in the middle of Amish country. I went to college for agriculture and have worked with animals all my life. As of the beginning of 2009 I had to leave that place behind.
I am now in Upstate New York and I am scheming to buy some property of my own. Watch out when I do! As of the Spring of 2010 I am renting in a rural area. This will allow me to restart my mini-farm... But I'm going to have to hold off on the larger critters for a while!
This blog is to document my experiences with my flock of chickens (and whatever else I end up with!). I hope you enjoy it!
