I needed a way to roll it up when I didn't want to use it as a sun block. So I used a roll of burlap that I had to put the ties up on both sides. It too is staple gunned to the top, and then I took some trim I had and covered the top where the staples were visible, using my hot glue gun.
I have moved the baby chicklets outside, but they are still separated from the big girls. They are still in the pack n play with their heat lamp on at night time. During the day, they are fine with just the screen on top.
I have to come up with creative ways to keep my chickens from sneaking into the garden through the fence slats to munch on my veggies. I used an old sheet and wove it through the one side. And then I took the feed saks from the chicken feed and clipped those to the bottom of the other area that they were slipping in through. These saks are a sort of coated plastic, and very durable. I have one attached to their coop by the laying box for privacy. I think they are so pretty with such vivid colors.
Oh, and one last thing. My friend Joyce gave me some dehydrated oranges today. She made them from oranges I gave her last week. They were amazing!! Like candy! I cannot wait to get a dehydrator now!!
That's about it for me. Time to waddle off to bed after a long day.
See you soon.
