More of the same. Nothing!

So here we are the following week, but still no chicks. Got some pics to post, though...

Here' a new shot of the chicken stairs to get into the box. Wanted to put up a place for them to be able to land before trying to squeeze through the door opening.

And here's a bad shot of the insulation pieces I screwed into the wall and the new lightbulb socket that I mounted and wired into the ceiling. I'm not sure if this is going to e a light source more than a heating suppl or what. Guess I'll just have to wait till it gets a it cooler and take some measurements of the temps inside the house to see what is needed in there. But right now, I'm thinking it's for the light to get year round eggs. The timer to switch the thing on and off is also here, but goes on the outside of the box and isn't shown here.

And lastly, a quick pic of the "One Bean Bitter" that me and Jody put together the other week. This is just me racking the beer into a keg, off the dry hops. This is easily the clearest beer I've ever seen in primary. It started out at 1.041 and finished at 1.014 F.G. for a whopping 3.5% abv. Right on schedule. Should be a good one!
