Chicken house update

Here’s a picture of me (with a stupid grin) putting up chicken wire.

Perhaps 1/2 the chicken wire is up at this point.

  1. What a good looking door 😉

  2. How many chickens are you planning on keeping? That’s a good sized house/run. Meat or Eggs? I wouldn’t mind having a couple of urban chickens for eggs, but I doubt it’ll happen.

  3. So here’s a question – are you planning on leaving it in the driveway? 🙂

  4. Heh, no. It’s out in the yard now, with 24 chickens in it. I should post new pictures. It’s working great. The only issue is that the runners gouge the yard a little, so I’m looking for a way to fix that without increasing the weight a lot.

    The plan is to use them for eggs, mostly. They will produce far more than we need, so the plan is to sell the excess to cover the costs of having them. A lot of work for “free” eggs, but hey.
