Okay, here's a warning up front: this post has absolutely nothing to do with Wow. It's completely personal, and it may bore most of you to death. That said, it is my blog, and so I'm gonna post about it.
For those of you that know me, you probably know that we decided that our family just wasn't a dog and/or cat family, so somehow we settled on buying chickens. For quite some time, I've been working on completing the coop for the chickens so they could eventually live outside in it. When I was mostly done with the coop (thanks to much help from my father-in-law), we purchased the 4 chicks at the beginning of June. My wife blogged about it here.
Then I've been working on the chicken run (think dog run, but for chickens). With trips to Legoland and other life things that have gone on (not to mention the demotivator of the heat), it's take me a bit of time, but the run is finally finished as well. (See completion post here.)
I've never been much into building things, more of a computer programmer-type guy. So, I'm really proud of what I've been able to pull off, with a good bit of help from my father-in-law and a friend/neighbor. So for anyone still wondering: No, we don't live in the "country". And yes, chickens are legal where we live. We can have up to 6. We have 4. And somewhere between another 2 to 4 months, we should start having fresh eggs.
Now back to our regularly scheduled Wow blogging.
