Noel worked hard to get our chicken coop up last weekend. It's not finished but here's a pic of it's current state. It still needs a roof, a ladder and the hardware cloth as well as windows. I'm betting he'll be able to finish it up this next weekend! We are really excited to get this project finished. The girls picked out a light blue paint for my coop and I'll be finishing it with white trim.

Here's pictures of the kids painting. Eli had to get in on the action, too. McKenna really wanted to paint with an easel and palette, so we created some for them. This was taken right before Eli got smeared in the face with Madelaines green paint!

I had put together a temporary outdoor enclosure for our chickies and Noel is going to make it sturdier for me with some hardware cloth. It'll be easier to move if he puts wheels on it, too. Eli had to get in some Daddy time. He's quite the little helper! This was right before I wisked him up to bed.

These are my growing girls - Casey in the front in the Ameracauna and the two black ones are the Black Star or Black Sex-link chickens. They had just finished eating some meal worms that we gave them.
