No sign of the dog this morning. My dear husband made my coffee then went out to work on the coop. Here are pictures from April when were were building it. I still haven't gotten around to painting it. I'll get to it in my other spare time....
Now that the birds are going to have to spend all their time cooped up, they need more outdoor space. The coop is 8x10 and had an attached 8x8 attached run. This morning, we fenced in the space under the coop to more than double the run size. We also reinforced the run with another layer of chicken wire to help keep predators out.
Poor birds will only get to free range for a little while in the evenings before roosting-time and only if I'm out with them. This means our feed bill will go up considerably.
That looks a little redneck doesn't it? Tough, it's a chicken coop.
