Sleeping Out

An update on where Rudy decided to spend the night.  As hard as I tried to keep him from flying out he still managed to get out of the pen area when I went for the evening feeding.....so he spent the night out again!  Earlier this morning he was on the ground not far from the coop........... 

......then he found his way back to the coop area but hasn't managed to find an opening yet.  I am beginning to think that he might end up being more of a free range kinda guy, LOL.  If that looks like the case I will have to come up with a plan to make some food available for him without feeding additional wildlife at least until the snow clears!

Hunter doesn't really like the new guy because I haven't let him run free yet today, I was hoping to keep things calm.......as soon as Hunter sees him things won't be calm.  I know that Rudy will fly up into the trees and get away, if only he knew how nice his life would be if he followed the program!! 

This has certainly been a learning process and in the spring we will be building a new coop and yard area, if you remember the girls came in late November and we didn't have much time for planning.  After a winter of going in and out of this area I now know what works, but even that wouldn't necessarily have kept Rudy in the coop without making me scream while he was flapping around, LOL.  I plan to modify this little coop and save it for newcombers like Rudy and make it escape proof while still allowing for me to feed and water.  Who knows when I get done I may have an EGGS for SALE sign out front to pay for my quilting!!!!

On another note, I did manage to get some stitching done yesterday, I worked on some of the wool applique blocks for the Green Piece Quilt. 
The above blocks are the ones I worked on yesterday, now they have to be sized and then I need to add the corner pieces like on the finished block below.  Then they will be ready to be layed out in rows with the pieced blocks until I finish the large center block which is a tree!
Well off to do some tidying around the house and see what mischief I can get into today!


  1. Looks like Rudy is laying down the law to you... he does not want to be cooped up...lol

    Poor Hunter... I am sure you will find a happy medium soon. Can't wait to see what the little gangster is up to next...lol

    Have a great day Denise...

    Hugs, Deb

  2. Your blocks look great! I'm sure you and Rudy will work something out! :0)

  3. I am so interested in watching the progress of your quilts. Thank you for your e mail, I see Rudi is still up to his tricks. You may be interested in my blog today, its about hens!


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
