Chook update

A few months ago, we finally built a run for the chook house. The chooks had destroyed the backyard and turned it into a dustbowl so we figured it was time to fence them in. It was pretty easy as it turned out, we concreted some pine poles in, made some rails and a gate and wired the whole lot up with aviary mesh. Irene escaped a couple of times early on, but once we clipped her wings she got over herself and hangs with the other girls now.
We’re growing some fruit trees and espaliering them along one side of the run…should be great once they’ve all grown in.
