Our chickens finally have their own yard. They haven’t minded having free run of the whole back yard, but Rascal hasn’t enjoyed being tied and, of course, we can’t start planting the garden until they are confined. Although, I think they would like us to go ahead with it.
|We mainly used T-posts but on the corner we used a short telephone pole.
I have no idea how we scored a telephone pole, but we did.
|Lunch break of bean burritos.|
|The completed yard. We didn’t quite go all the way back to the fence line
because we want to put our bees back in that corner.
|We also burned the three piles of branches that were here when we moved in.
Originally, we thought we’d chip them, but after finding a couple of
copperhead snakes in the backyard we decided to just burn them
and spread the ash in the garden.
It feels so very good to get something crossed off the goal list. I still can’t cross of the floors, because they are only “almost” complete. We still have to put in some quarter round in the boys room and install a couple of thresholds. But we still have 11 months.
