Look what happened now...
How is it August already? How is that even possible?
I met up with my brother the other day. His current project was building a chicken coop. He found the plans on the net (for free of course.) So after a few trips to the lumber yard & some hammering his new chicken coop is complete. I asked him where he purchased the chickens? He said from some neighborhood chicken person.
He ended up buying this rooster too. Check out his legs... WTF??
This coop is for roosting at night. (So don't start asking questions about size vs chickens) They are free to roam around his yard (its 1/2 acre and fenced) during the day time. He shut the door for a day or two so they would feel like it was home and not roost on the porch or his motorcycle. LOL * --- *
And no, he is not vegan or anything of the sort. He will eat the eggs and raise more chickens to sell (like that neighborhood chicken person, lol) I doubt he will eat the chickens. (At least not after he names them and they bond.) I think they are cute myself.
He still has to buy or build boxes for the chickens to lay in. (I believe he did that yesterday.) He is a farmer now, lol.
Because people always email me to ask. The chickens (including Mr. Rooster) were $20.00USD and he thought he might have gotten ripped off. (I don't see how, but ok)
He said the lumber, wire and hardware for the coop were approx. $100.00. The plan estimated the cost at around $50.-$70. but didn't figure in the economy or the local oil boom which has driven prices up on everything. :X
Speaking of the economy, my turn to help it. I have to squeeze in a little birthday shopping today. All these leo friends have birthdays approaching and are so hard to buy for. They have everything, so WTH? I still haven't found that damn antique shelf yet. I think he might just end up with a nice bottle of wine.
Just a Woman in the World. Sometimes a lonely traveler, sometimes with the Krewe. Eating, shopping and meditating my way through life...
