We used a trundle bed for the base. We (Sam) just knocked the slats all up one end for the nesting box to sit in and then popped some wire on the other half of the floor.
Next we turned an old cupboard into the nesting box. Sam made an a frame from timber off cuts, and put some tin (spare bits of the fence) as cover up one end and chook wire up the other.
The chooks had been holidaying at a friends while we worked on their accommodation. Yesterday Kate went out and caught them and brought them in. I did question whether a very pregnant lady should be chasing chooks. Kate is apparently very ready for young Lucy to arrive, and was happy to do the chook chasing providing no video cameras were involved. So, without further ado, introducing Scuzzy and Middle Chook. (The girls were already named and I'm sure in Miedecke tradition they will have new names before the week is out).
The kids enjoyed our first egg scrambled (along with some of the eggs Jane sent us home from at the Liffey) for dinner. Yummola!
