Well the coop got painted yesterday afternoon.  Frankly, after $5,000 in cost I am going to stop counting.  The eggs I am sure will be the best.  Friday I will be meeting with the lab who will start testing my chickens for Salmonella and Campylobacter.  And, the chickens have been let out of the coop to begin their somewhat free range lives.  There is netting across the top as we also have eagles in the neighborhood.
