We decided to use some items we had to fence in the chickens. Not the prettiest but free. We may put up something more permanent if we like this set up. Having them corralled is so nice. No poopies all over the patio. They seem content and they have plenty of room.
See this mess? Imagine it covering half my yard. We trimmed two big trees a couple of weeks ago. We were so beat but we figure we saved hundreds of dollars doing the work ourselves. This is the last pile. Each week I tie up bundles to be picked up. I just chipped away at it several days a week. Plus think of all the exercise I got.
I mowed the back lawn today and hosed everything down and cleaned up toys. We are expecting rain so tomorrow I will work all day in the house. I love rainy days. See that bent part in the chicken wire? The first day I found my big dog, my ten year old dog, in the pen with the chickens. She jumped that fence and then jumped right back out when I yelled at her. She just wanted to check things out. She pays the chickens no mind so I am thankful for that.
The oranges are ripening and we still have flowers blooming. Our season is long here. Soon we will be making O.J. in the mornings.
