The wind speeds have been ridiculous for about 3 days… and the rain. Im kind of OVER the rain! Temps up and down….. ugh…. a total mess! BUT with this storm, the wind direction changed and has blow from the south east for 2 days. My coop faces SouthEast….. my coop is an open front….. I had never seen weather blow directly into this coop! (there is ALWAYS a first)
The look on these birds was one of shear disgust! Not one of them was happy as they were roosting on a rafter above the window…. so I got to work by covering windows. By supper time…. the roof began to flap…. and flap….and flap. The floor was WET! So, at 7pm, I make a flying run to get more shavings and the husband begins clamping down the roof…. (Clamping because some of the wood rafters will need replaced as well). By 10pm, we had all the drafts under control, roof clamped back on, chicken bedded down…. still looking at me like a servant they wouldn’t lower themselves to look at let alone talk to…. and me texting the roofer on moving the job forward. This coronacation is JUST about to end me!!!!
