The Next Fence Project

27 Sep

One day last week (my days seriously run together), I was in a hurry to get everything done before I went to work.  I let the birds out into their outdoor pen.  Then I checked Antigone and went in to milk goats.  When I finished milking, I came out with sweet feed for Antigone.  that’s when I noticed a hen running around outside.

the naughty hen

I chased her for a while and then got her put back safely into the pen.  She was out again when I got home.

That time, it took a while to catch her.  I need to put a layer of chicken wire along the bottom of their pen.

I would love to have free range chickens, but the dog and raccoons would also like it if I had chickens running around all over.
