It was wonderful having Paul visit for a few days. Thanks to him we got so much more accomplished. First job yesterday was filling the feeders and water containers.

Next we stopped by the local lumberyard for 200 feet of hemlock.
Those green boxes you see on the trailer are the shipping containers for the chickens.

We loaded our two boxes and covered them with a tarp thanks to Rob.

Feed, wood, chickens everything was secure and we headed for home.

Freckles was quite intrigued with the furry little balls that squeaked none stop.

Mary lifted each one from the shipping container and placed its bill into the water container so it knew where to go for a drink. They were hot and thirsty after their journey.

Once the 40 baby chicks were settled Paul and I got busy working on the roof. Of course it was one of the hottest days of the summer, 30*C and we were working in direct sunlight, no shade.

Construction report will follow tomorrow.

Just checked on the babies and all were sleeping soundly.

Time for me to go back to bed.
