It's getting dark outside, so my time to make progress on the chicken coop is over for today. In hindsight, I should have built a simpler coop from scratch instead of buying a "kit" for this complex thing.
Then I'm supposed to pre-drill and countersink some more stuff through the PVC to attach it to the wood. I don't own a countersink. I didn't see countersink on the list of tools I'd need, so I didn't buy one. I'm going to fake it with a larger drill size and hope I don't drill all the way through by accident. That would make me angry. Oh wait. I'm already angry. 27 different kinds of angry about this freakin' thing.
I loved Karen Sue's idea about carrots as a treat for the goats. Except these goats don't seem to like carrots, or anything else I give them that's not leafy branches. I have a feeling it's me they don't like, at least until they get used to me, and I have a feeling I'm going to have to spend a ton of time getting them used to me. I wonder where that time is going to come from?
