I painted all day in Kristine's room today and my arm is a bit tired, so maybe tomorrow I'll take the day off and spend it with the chickens and install the new waterer.
This one is made to hang by slipping the back over a fence board. I hope it will reach the gate because I'm sure it will fit on one of the supports. If not, then I will get to do a bit of building with a 2x4 to get it to hang properly.
I would like to build something to keep the chickens from roosting on the box and pooping in it. I'll see what I can come up with tomorrow.
I'll have to remember to empty this waterer when the temps drop. The chickens would rather have me bring them warm water anyway.
The owl is really supposed to be in the garden, but we don't want to scare the birds in the green garden so it is a house owl until I ever get an actual veggie garden that really needs the birds frightened away.
Thank you for the comments! At the rate I'm going I worry it is going to be winter before I have time to answer and read blogs. Well, until it starts raining anyway.
