the nest boxes for the chickens
I went to grab the quail and place them in their new home. All was not well. One of the quail was laying on its side sleeping and the other quail was laying next to it. So I grabbed for the sleeping quail. It wasn't asleep. It was cold and dead!

I had to add a door holder, I ended up using two boards that each pivot. The first one pivots out to hold the door and the little one pivots down to hold the first one in place. As you can see I had to use some shims for the door handles. I had the handles in the shed, leftover from some 50s kitchen remodel. They never threw anything away. So now all I need to do is clean out the baby chick enclosure. I am going to place an order for new baby chicks on Monday at the feed store! It will take them a week to get the chicks in. I have settled on 12 Brahmas and 6 leghorns. I may not be able to get the leghorns. If not I am going to shoot for a white egg layer. May just get more Polish hens, but they are a smaller breed. All depends on what I can order.
