16 Chickens and What do you get?

It occurred to me a few weeks ago that my 16 new pullets will out grow their little house well before they are big enough to join the other flock.

Saturday I set out to build a temporary coop made from panels of 3X2X8 s and chicken wire.

Once finished I bolted the panels together and added chickens. 

Now I have 26 hens that will be comingled when they get bigger. Then I’ll break down the coop to use another time.

It's nice to see the proper use of chicken wire.

Can you imagine some people have built boats out of it with cement.

I was questioned at Home Depot about my intension and I said "Chickens of course".

They said "good...don't use it on cement".

So some folks use it as re-bar?

We use chicken wire to:

A) keep the rabbits in;
B) stop cats crapping on our plants.

No chickens, sadly.

We've used chicken wire around the garden to keep the rabbits OUT!
