My husband – as I’ve mentioned before – is an awesome, amazing, godly, wonderful, brilliant, genius type of guy.
While I’ve been lying around my hospital room being lazy, he’s been home – doing everything. (I mean EVERYTHING! Have I mentioned before what a blessed woman I am to be his wife?)
Look what he did yesterday:
SIX new nest boxes! This after getting up at the crack of dawn, doing all sorts of household stuff, then bringing me my Zune and headphones – oh and my lipstick, gotta have your lipstick while you’re in the hospital! Then he drove out to TCBC to pick up our daughter – about a 75 mile round trip from our house. Then picked up the other kids, came and visited me, got everyone fed, did EVERYTHING, and then THIS!
Isn’t he the coolest?
The girls think so, too:
This is Henrietta. Whenever John is in the yard she follows him. She has a big crush on him. (Who can blame her?!) She loves to be close at hand whenever he’s building anything. She seems impressed, doesn’t she?
The view from outside the coop – cool double doors to gather eggs from.
Nah… chickens aren’t curious at all! LOL! Ducky, Henrietta, and two off the Speckled Sussex girls who should start laying any old day now!
Ducky – she’s so cute! She’s got to be the first to check it out up close and personal.
I think she likes it.
Good little Speckled Sussex! This is where you’re supposed to lay your eggs! Not out in the yard. Not on the floor of the coop – HERE. Pass the word, okay?
See that? One of the Delaware chicks on the right? Oh, I hope she figures it out fast, too!
One of the Blue Andalusians on the right – she’s so pretty. And… I kind of suspect she may have already laid an egg. I’m so glad she’s so interested in the nest boxes!
Now all we need is for everyone to KNOW that this is where they are to lay – and to start! J
