Two newest additions came home yesterday, the one on the left is a Speckled Sussex and the light one is a Blue Orpington. They are so sleepy from the trip home. Lovey dubby

Doggie TV remains popular, especially now with the newest additions. (enlarge to see doggie #2) We have the new ones separated for just a few days with the window between the boxes, just to get them settled in a bit, then we'll open it up so they can all intermingle.

A cabinet has been added to the back of the coop, it houses an automatic waterer, complete with a filter and an automatic feeder is being completed to be added next. We'll store all food and supplies in here too.

The cilantro (my husband's, I can't stand the smell or taste!) is so tall it's hanging over the raised beds, nice blooms but I'm not getting any closer for pictures! Thumbs down Hilarious! Did you know that the dislike of cilantro is a genetic thing according to research?
There is even a "I Hate Cilantro' Facebook page!
