Chicken Doors?

K, We have a roof on, sorry no pics yet. We have started discussing the windows and ventilation. For those of you who don't know, my husband is an engineer. Nuff said? It has been a long process designing this coop. Does anyone out there have any advice on coop windows, ventilation and chicken doors? Anything you've done, anything you wish you would have done, anything you would change, anything you've seen that you thought was totally cool? Please advise.

Failure To Launch

Once again the eggs have failed to hatch. Could it be inconsistent temps, or maybe the rooster just lost his juice? Who knows! It's okay, it's all good. My uncle tried and would probably keep on trying but I think I'm just going to order me some chicks. So, now I'm trying to decide how many and what kind. Any thoughts?

Well, I decided to cut it. I love it! Picture one is straightened and picture two is au naturale.

No progress

No progress on the coop. It's been raining here all week pretty much. It's supposed to clear up by Saturday. Sooo, hopefully we will be able to work on it more then.

As much as I want it to be dry for the coop build, I love the rain this time of year. Everything is in technicolor. All the spring colors seem brighter with the rain. The grass and the leaves are a beautiful shade of green. The dead leaves and soil radiate a special kind of brown. My little purple iris' simply glow their color. It's just gorgeous!

Hair today, gone tomorrow?

Sooo, you may have noticed I finally put a profile pic up. But here's the thing, that's not how I look right now. My hair is actually much longer and less stylish. I like it all right, but when I see pics of me with short stylish hair I get the itch. Those of you out there with short hair know what I'm talking about. It's the same itch I get sometimes when my hair is short and I want it long except it's a lot easier to scratch when the itch is for short hair. When I'm itchin' for the long hair it takes months and months to get there. So, what do you think? Short or long?
