the pen

In order to avoid another fox vs. chicken incident, the chickens had to lose some of their ¬†freedom and are now relegated to the pen. We’d been planning to move their coop further away from the house anyway, but ended up choosing a different location. Steve, with some help from his dad, did the hard work of putting in the posts and fencing. As usual, I document stuff.

The older chickens who had seen the “world” usually feel desperately trapped while the 3 younger ones (now 17 weeks old) who had previously been contained all their lives think it’s a great playground. A big bonus is that we no longer have chicken poop everywhere!
