Time running out, but we move two broods outside 16-17 July 2011

Building coops, looking after birds. It is a race against time as Nige and I are off on the 19th. We spend all of both days until dusk on the job, Roland and I riveting and drilling and cutting hour after hour after hour, Nige totally involved in setting brooders up, Liz in watching chicks and cleaning. Brilliant news as two broods are moved outside, Nige and Roland set up a camp next to the birds and sleep out.

 I tried to sleep in the kitchen as the chicks keep you awake, mosquitoes eat us alive, We have to keep all windows open to allow ventilation.
