The henhouse is nearing completion. This photo shows four ghostly chickens, covered in sandable sealer, waiting for things to start happening. They are painted tonight and constructing the fairly simple drive mechanism is on for tomorrow. The chickens are named Twister, Pecker, Rocker and Bouncer. It seems that visitors into the henhouse draw different reactions from the brood.
