Shed coop progress  
We got half the shed built yesterday. Chris and I had a very nice day of and spent most of it at home working on the shed. He also bought me a foxglove plant. These never do well in Florida but they are some of my favorite wild flowers. They attract hummingbirds. I planted it and hope it will last a decent amount of time. I don't know why they don't survive here though I have seen them in books saying they are native. Perhaps up in north Florida only.

My shoulders, neck and back have been hurting a lot. This started when I would look up at the big screen in the other room. It's lingering so I think my fibro is acting up in those areas. I haven't felt too well the last few days.

I have started Saints Row 2 and made a decent George. I may start over and try with another template. I used the black guy and recolored him. I'll try the white guy next. He's never going to look right because the hair isn't in the game but there's one that's passable. It's amazing what not covering the ears makes a huge difference. His face could be right and I wouldn't know it because of the hair.

I should get my Easter cut outs today and then I should be mostly set for Easter decorations. I can finally make that video.

Ok time for pics.

The floor is set.

All the big pieces.

My three favorite hens, Zucca, Raptor and Henrietta, go check out what we did.

Most of the walls up.

This is as far as we got. All the walls are up. This is so exciting and I can't wait to finish it and move the hens into it. I have to build the perches soon.

Peep is old. I don't think he'll be around much longer. I think he's 7 or 8.

Here he is with Bullet his grand daughter. She's mean to other budgies so I couldn't let her get too close to him.

Three of the five bluebird eggs hatched.

Roadrunner high up in the oak tree.

And that's about it for now.

Peep is cute. You haven't put up pictures of him for quite a while. It looks like you clipped him, and also that he has more black spots on his back than I thought he did. Bullet is adorable as always.

Sweet little bluebirds. I should check the chickadee nest to see if it has eggs in it yet.

Yes he was my best flyer and kept getting into the hanging basket of nepenthes and eating them. I had to stop that. He's too old to fly now anyway.

Bullet is clipped too and Optic. I need to clip Cinnamon bun because he crashes. Only Abigail will be flighted.

I'm so glad to have blue birds again.

The shed is looking good! Lol I thought you'd got foxglove PAINT. XD I feel silly. Having a paint that smells of a plant is kind neat though.
Aww Peep is sweet. I was watching home movies I've done over the years and looking back on my old guinea pigs who I filmed, I miss them.

Thanks. I can't wait for it to be done.Hee hee that would be nice paint.
I sent someone my link to my Sexing Budgies video and it was sad to see all the budgies in there have passed on.

Aaaw...I'm sorry Peep is old. His granddaughter looks a lot like him.

I'm glad you had a good day and cool advances on the chook house. It looks really good! What is that stuff on the floor? It looks good for the chook's feet. Does it let moisture out?

And such cute little baby blue birds! I love the colour of their eggs. It is cool how you have set up your box so that you can take pics like this. I hope your bluebirds have a good year.

Wow, Roadrunner is high up in that tree! My chooks liked being up in trees, too, but not that high as they were a plumper breed. There's a place down the range advertising in the paper that has various breeds of point of lay chooks and chickens for sale in May and I don't know if I have the will power to stay away!

PS Sorry abut your neck, shoulders and back. Hopefully they will settle down and readjust over time, especially as it is getting warmer.

Yeah he's slowed down a lot. Yeah and she has a lot of his personality.

It's a plastic floor. Will be easy to wash.

Yes I love that bluebird eggs are blue. I just open it when the parents aren't there and quickly take pics. Thanks, me too.

I was amazed to see her really fly the other day. She could turn in flight which surprised me. You should get some new chickens. They are so cute.

Yeah. I was in bed most of the day yesterday. It is a bit better but perhaps I need one more day of rest.

I am soo tempted to get more chooks! I miss mine so much.

I'm glad you had a rest day in bed yesterday. I had the sore neck/shoulder/back thing today. I wonder if it's going around?

I can imagine. They're so fun to have around.

I don't now. Yesterday I was much better. Today it hurts but maybe it's just this morning.
