So far, this has been a very productive *vacation*. M and her husband came early on Labor Day morning to move out the quail condo. M is now raising them and likes them. I say it's because they are not right outside of her bedroom window. That cleared out the run area of the A-frame chicken-duck-meatbird pen. Then I guilted them into helping me move the HEAVY small coop across the yard and into the rabbits' area. This involved engineering, patience, many breaks, heavy-lifting, and my groveling. In the top photo, the area to the right is where the small coop used to be. It is now within the fenced area to the left. It's looking a little less like the slums of Tandoori. The Barnevelders (in the small coop) had quite an exciting journey, closed up in their house, across the tundra of my back yard. They were a little confused that night - it was their coop, but it was in an alien land, so they didn't dare go inside. Luckily, they are mild-mannered chickens and I was able to scoop them up and put them back inside, safe and sound. Now that things are consolidated, my evening chores are a breeze!
