This was the view out the kitchen window first thing this morning.
Bella – out standing on the hillside.
We could not resist the sunshine and warm weather. When we got home after running errands in the city we got right back to work on the Guinea Run.
We saved the most challenging panel for last. No right angles … ending wrapped through a big tree trunk. We managed it!
We’ve got one of the perches up for the Guineas … they’ll be able to soak up the afternoon sun from this railing.
Rosie stayed with us while Bella and Darby wandered away.
The Guineas ‘serenaded’ us while we worked.
Okay … Rosie would disagree with the use of ‘serenade’ … !
Ack! What is stuck to the bottom of my foot?
Last wall – looking great! We even managed to line it up so the screen mesh is level.
Sir Henry deciding to check out the millet.
Thanks Marg for the beautiful flowers!
This is the view when I look past my desk into the front sunroom.
Ede carried the luck of the Irish with her today. We had some errands to run. That meant we had to drive down to the city … always a shame on a beautiful blue sky morning. This time it was still incredibly nice out when we got home. After lunch we headed straight out to finish off the last wall panels of the Guinea Run. Nice to work in that kind of weather. Now we have the gate and the coop door to do … and we’ll be ready!! I am quite excited about being able to set the Guineas loose in much more space.

It’s always satisfying to finish a project like that! Looks good. I know the Guineas will love it!
It sure is roomy! And will be the ‘in-between’ step toward having them free range.
Impressive 🙂 Sure hope the Dumb Clucks don’t press themselves up against the far wall of present coop once the door ‘to freedom’ is opened. Snow looking reluctant to leave, hope the sun wins 🙂 Laura
That is the exact image I have in my mind when I think about their first encounter with a way out of the coop! I will be sure to document what happens. And yes, the snow is hanging in here. I think we may get another dose next week … and some years well into the middle of April. But it is very different snow than we get in the months of December through February. Easier to not plow … I find I’m hopeful that leaving it makes it melt more quickly.
Nothing for it then …. lots of pancakes and maple syrup 🙂 Laura
Laura, can you get maple syrup in South Africa?
Sure, a bottle labled Maple Syrup (???) not sure if it is real or not. Specialist deli’s sell 100ml bottles for over R200, this may be closer and does taste different to grocery store stuff. Laura
Email me! I’d LOVE to send you a litre of the REAL stuff – made just down our road. Delicious!! My gift to you!
