    Thanks I will be building on to the truck cap coop I plan to make it longer and wider. The 2 handed bottle hold is not easy but I was able to manage it long enough to take a few pics lol

    I hope she is successful with her eggs. She is the first hen we have ever go broody. I'm not exactly sure when she started if it was before I went in the hospital or during but at least I have a rough idea for a count down to a hatch date. It would be great to see some chicks running around with their momma!

    IME, broodies cook their babies faster than an incubator does!

    We have a guinea hen setting a huge nest of eggs. It's the third nest, something ate the eggs from the other two. Yesterday the lambs got too close for comfort, she was raising the roof and so was the male. Our Great Pyrenees, Trip ran up to protect her. Good boy!
