The chicken's have a new home, yay! Well, not really a new home, more like a new location in the backyard. Gotta love the "Chicken Tractor".
The coop had been placed over our garden area during the winter. You know, chicken manure has the best nitrogen for gardens! Since it was getting to be that time of year where we have to start planning our garden, the thought of where the coop would go had started to sink in. Ugh. Well, that and the fact that the darn chickens kept escaping and poop, was everywhere.
We came up with the idea to build a run for them.
The thought of less poop on the back steps, seemed to outweigh a shrinking backyard.
I'm happy everyone has a new little home. Now maybe I can add more chickens to the flock :) This project was two fold because we added a large 6X6 post to hang a new clothes line. Yay! The old one had rotted and fallen down.
See that large black box??
I'm going to plant herbs there. Can't have enough fresh herbs in the summertime!I was also thinking of planting sunflowers along the inside of the run for the chickens to eat. I think they'd enjoy that, yes?
My guess is this: If I keep the chickens happy, we'll continue to get plenty of eggs :)
And of course sweet Rango. Don't worry buddy, I've got a few more hens lined up for ya.
So glad spring is finally arriving, I can't believe we have daffodils blooming already...
Looking forward to another warm week of spring cleaning and good running weather.
