Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

A Cozy Place to Nest

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Finding the first egg meant I needed to get my butt in gear and stop procrastinating over finishing out the nesting boxes.  I mentioned in an earlier post that I'd come up with the idea of using plastic bins as inserts in the boxes.  The idea is that they will make it easier to grab the eggs and clean the boxes, since the bins can just slide out the back.  I filled the bottom of the bins with shredded junk mail, so it's a great way to recycle also!

Gosh darn, these chooks are so useful....
