I told the builder what I wanted, and he put the plan into action.
|Enjoying the early morning sun|
|Water tank is plumbed in|
|Girls exploring their new space|
|Opens for a little breeze on a hot summer night|
|The ramp - new skills to be learned to get in and out|
|Edie - an Isa Brown, the querulous chicken, complains all day long|
|Freya - a bantam and boss of the coop for all her diminutive size|
|Goodie, she's a quiet little bantam|
|and Big Juno - she's barely a year old, a buff Plymouth Rock, a gentle and sweet chicken|
And it's relieved a lot of stress for me, I don't have to let them out and put them to bed each day, or struggle to keep their space clean, and no worrying about the wild bird hoards descending. They're let out of an afternoon to free range, usually while I'm working in the garden in the cool, as they sure do love my lettuce.
We couldn't be happier.
