The chooks house is finished! (The building part is, I still have 1 door to paint.) At the moment it is butted up againist the wire and a hole cut in the wire for access. Late yesterday afternoon, working in the final light of the day, we moved it into position and then realised it wouldn’t fit between the posts. (You think we would have measured it first… )
So for now it is just sitting here, but later on (hopefully this weekend) we will remove the wire and the posts and move the house inside the pen. And then reconstruct the pen. Or…
I am debating about removing this smaller pen all together and just keeping the back area for the girls. The boys are really wanting a fort and sandpit to play in and this area would be perfect. But at the same time this area is great for the chooks when I need them to be locked up… At least I have a few days to debate this and I will run it past my hubby to see what he thinks too.
I would love to hear any thoughts you might have on this, it would be much appreciated, pros or cons please feel free to comment.
