    This is the one I've ordered - http://www.backyardchickencoops.com....the-taj-mahal/
    Beers - have you set up your Taj Mahal? How do you like it? Or rather, do the chooks like it? We have 3 new chooks and DH is planning a coop made of various bits of recycled stuff, but I'm wondering if a mail order effort wouldn't be easier and give DH an actual summer break rather than a construction project.

    Good luck!! Ikea should sell chook houses, complete with the picture instructions and an Allen key Have you got the chooks yet?

    Fun fact - my phone autocorrects beebs to either beer or verbs. That probably says more about me than it does about you!

    You can still them whole in the freezer and use them later in smoothies.

    @nudge88 mum said the same thing to me, but they would take up so much freezer space if I did them whole... think I can freeze just the pulp??
