well i went to town to pick up some plywood for the hen house, and stopped by tractor supply. They had another load of rabbits in so i got 2 more. I then came home and started working on the henhouse a bit and got the wall insulated and plywood up, then mounted the nest boxes and installed the roosts on the other wall. i need to make my door still so the chickens can get in and out, but i’m getting closer ….here are the pics
