We absolutely love our chickens. They run around the yard all day like little dinosaurs and scratch up our lawn looking for insects, leaving their wonderful fertiliser behind, we get delicious fresh eggs from them (and we know what they were fed) and we love the fact that Sydney is growing up around farm animals.

Summer and I finally found a great door place in Puerto Rico. They are located on the No. 2 highway just north of Isabella (if you are driving towards San Juan). They had a very large supply of nice wood doors. All of these mahogany doors look like they are hand made. They range in price from $100
