Ran out of paint...But got 2 bottom floors of the last 3 stackers done. I don't know why it comes in brown...looks like rust, which sucks. Lol

Moving them over to one wall. The last 3 stackers will go into that gap.

Put most buns at bottom cages to keep cooler.
Once I have buy more paint, I'll temporarily move them again to get that done. Patches added to all finished painted cages.

Then, I did more work on the external nestboxes. Don't have an adult to test it out, so I'll have to wait n see.

Put flashing up to connect the buildings. Should stop rain & sun from coming in.
Also used random things as trays for now.
I have roof tin I can use, if I figure out how to set it up just right. Not sure that there's enough space to angle it down to the front and use a gutter to catch waste, but I'll try it out and see what happen

Had to get another scale. Unfortunately, this one's weight choice is on the scale...wtf. I'll have to add little rubber feet so it doesn't touch that danged button!
The other two scales were a dial food and a dial hanging. Food one, them breathing or moving changed the weight a lot or kept the needle bouncing=hard to read. Hanging one had the increments too tiny, so I was occasionally right or off.
New digital one shows a more stable number and I don’t have to guess.
Gotta get a separate basket for weighing.

Finished painting the floors. Cut plastic to act as trays. Each panel cuts to 4 pieces. Need a few more.
Have 3 more gutters I can use as well. Though, bottom one will be tricky to deal with. Higher ones can drip into buckets.

A whole bun is in there, I swear!
Lol. Husband wanted it "like chicken breast". Figured out that meant fully deboned. 😑 Took a bunch of work & lost some meat, but what can ya do?
Beef stew packet. You really can turn it into any meat. Lol. It'll accept whatever flavor you want to use with it.
