working on the coop
It’s been so wet we’ve had a difficult time getting the coop done by the time the girls were six weeks old. They should have been outside by now.
Ryan is just finishing the housing and we’ll add the hardware cloth and roof within the next day or two. We’ve decided to lay sod inside the run. I suppose we’ll find out if this is a good idea as time passes and it gets caked with poop.
We’ve also passed on the under-the-henhouse-storage idea. What do we really have to store that takes that much room we started to wonder. Why not just give the girls more space? So now they’ll have a kind of enclosed area under their house...to protect them from the elements I suppose.
