Yep, the chicken run is finally finished….what do you think of this picture of the chicken wire? I felt it needed an acknowledgement…after my struggle to contain it! Ha! See that old wood ladder? Nope, I’m not still working on the chicken run…that is my girls’ new roust.
The girls took to their new outside space, ‘like ducks to water’! They walked around wondering, what this new stuff was on their feet but they were burrowing and digging in it ASAP. That new stuff is play sand, 12-5 gallon buckets worth…yes, I hauled it from the truck and dumped it myself….not bad for a 65 year old! (I’m sure I’ll feel it tomorrow.)
Of course, I gave them a reward, their first scratch.
It’s a simple life.
This is the new automatic door, you cut out a whole the size of the door, place the box between two studs, place trim on the outside and inside of the little door. and plug her in!
I did a major clean out, scrub down and added new shavings.
The girls were definitely ready for bed (and so was I..it was nearly 8:00 when I finished) and with a little start from Mommie and Rosa, the whole gang got in.
I am so happy all of this is done, now I can concentrate on my vintage Shasta, Driving Ms. Daisy.
