Decided to change the pedestal into a shelf at the end of the kitchen area with the sink. Any use of vertical space in our house comes at a premium and this is a precious resource, since we've got a small pad.
Where the old cooking magazine and book rack by the back door went, we now have a small bench with storage shelf that was built from leftover scraps.
Even the Polish are starting to lay now, which is impressive since it's molting season and much of the girls' calcium and protein reserves go to the production of new feathers. Pictured above is a "good hair day" for these goofy birds.
Soon to our assortment of colors, we will add generic white from the Polish when they are laying eggs big enough to sell.
