Our new guest has become part of our family. I think he will stay, I hope anyway.
He is a rescued, tame Canadian goose we took in at the end of January. He was weak, skinny and very cold. He can't fly and now has a new home.
He follows me around the garden, he is lovely, just lovely.
Our neighbor gave us this chicken house last fall. I put on the window and the nesting box. I still have some work to do, a coat of paint, a better latch... so far it is working out great. The nesting box keeps the eggs so clean.
It only took me a few hours to make two nesting boxes this size. My idea worked! I think knowing how to sew helps so much in the construction of any project. It is all the same idea, creating a three-dimensional, usable object/garment from an idea or prototype, just a different medium...
Easy to open, easy to clean.
The "big" chicken house. We made it a few years ago out of salvaged or leftover wood and found windows. It has a bigger box, there are four nests in this box.
Sista lookin' out into the sun.
