Learning to Put 2 & 2 Together...

     So- it's been a crazy week and a half around the Martin household! We are both finishing up finals and, with them, our last semester or true college classes. We are both really excited to be so close to finishing college and graduating in May, but it is so hard to stay motivated! With that said, our latest endeavor began during finals week...

     Yep. It's the one thing my husband doesn't know how to do (you think I'm kidding). So I made a deal with Hubz- he could buy a welder if he would build me a chicken tractor. That's what I like to call a win-win. :]

     But wait wait wait, "What the heck is a chicken tractor?!?" you say? Only the most awesome invention since sliced bread- and little did I know, an idea that is about as old... and no, it's not what you think! My first thoughts were, "Chickens used as a tractor? Huh?"...
     And then

 this crazy picture popped into my head! 

     But no, basically it's much less ridiculous than the name implies. It's just a mobile chicken coop... and it's coming along nicely! Hubz is a fast learner. He's been using scrap metal we found around the farm and he's already got the frame almost finished. We have our last finals tomorrow and Hubz is going to stop and pick up some chicken wire and probably a new cut off wheel for his angle grinder (totally just learned what that was called) at his favorite store on his way home tomorrow. I can't wait to go to the chicken sale! "]
