The ole coop has served out its time. I moved it to the burn pile a few weeks back. I hope the replacement last at least half of this one. 100 years old roughly. She just had too much dry rot to save her.

The perfect boiled egg!
Well, we all know that nothing is perfect, but this works pretty darn well. First, your eggs must be 14 days old minimum. Start your pot of water bring it to a boil, place your eggs right from the fridge into the boiling water. Make sure water is at a rolling boil before you put your eggs in. I used a soup scooper. Boil them exactly 11 minutes. Remove from hot water and place them directly into ice water. Place ice water with eggs back in fridge for 30 minutes before peeling under a small stream of cold water. 90 plus % success rate using this method to peel fresh eggs after boil. :)

The hens are officially on strike. Been 3 weeks since I've got an egg. LOL (they just came out of molt) Might be a while for eggs.

Do you have an aggressive Rooster with spurs??? You know you can remove those. Just take a pair of pliers and gently wiggle them back and forth to loosen. Pull straight out and the cover of the hard spur will pop right off. There is a soft spur underneath which will harden and start to grow again.

Last night, when I went to close up the coop, I was missing a hen. I searched all around last night with a flashlight, found nothing. Today in the afternoon sun, I found her in the woods. Just a skeleton with everything gone but her wings and bones. Stripped clean. I guess I need to get the raccoon live trap back out.

A friend of mine sent this photo to me today.I could use some of these about now. :)

Turned on the artificial timer light in the coop tonight. Hate to see summer coming to an end. It's getting dark way too early.
