The Chicks Are Coming!
First, the site had to be excavated. Herb shoveled the shavings over to the other side of the shed with Zephyr's "help." Here she is playing one of her favorite games, racing back and forth along the shelves, barking wildly of course, while Herb tosses shavings.
You've heard of barn-raisings? Well, this is a brooder-raising! Here Herb is raising the framework of the front wall into place. I helped pound in a few nails, but Herb could drive about 6 nails to one of mine, so my main job was standing on the studs he was nailing in so they wouldn't bounce around.
