Door’n Again

31 May

Well, we had a door which I took from my mothers place after Loki chewed a hole in it last month..and we had a pecking issue with the chickens getting at the board insulation between the siding and the ground.

So we made some modifications to the doors ( in the form of cutting them ) and augmented our dwelling ( in the shape of attaching the cut door panels over top of the insulation )…Wondertwins ACTIVATE!

..sorry for the ‘Super Friends’ references..but even Gleek would approve of this job..hehe..groan, I am a geek.

It is no Mona Lisa but it does prevent the chickens ( when they are out on occasion ) from pecking at thier favorite spot..which happened to be the highly visable front of out house…should last us until next year…too bad Loki did not chew through all the doors in my Moms house..that way we would have had enough destroyed doors to do all of the insulation coverup for our whole house! hehe..

    you need to encourage Loki to eat more doors – bahahahah! i think they look great!

    oh and btw – you left a comment on my post about the hummingbird feeders and asked if we had one male fighting off the other males. i answered back that we had no probs with males fighting but that the women always chased off the men and wouldn’t let them drink. wouldn’t you know it – after that i went down to the kitchen table to watch all of the birds and all of a sudden there is a fat little male perching on the fence and he keeps fighting off the other males! we had never seen them do that before?!?!?!? so we really need to get some more feeders set up in the backyard. i thought it was pretty funny and wanted to share.

    your friend,

      haha, too funny. You can actually combat the male protecting the feeders by moving the feeders further apart so he cannot patrol them all at once…different parts of the yard. We move the feeders out of sight of each other so a male can only guard 1 at a time.

      Yeah, it turned out better than expected actually..need to garbage pick to find some more! hehe
