Chickens and their soon to be new home.

Well, the outside chicken pen is almost done. Not too shabby for less than $20 in supplies, I think. The lumber was left over from another yard project, the plastic sheeting was less than $1 per sheet and the mesh was previously wrapped around the compost pile.
The chickens are growing really fast and getting really noisy. We’ve been tossing in bugs and flowers for them to eat. They also seem to love corn on the cob. They each seem to have developed their own personality. One, Gertie, has a very crooked beak but eats just fine. Foghorn (the Leghorn) is very docile and will eat from your hand and climb on for a ride. So far, the chickens have been a success.
Of course, Rusty has been a great guard dog. He’s been curious about and patient with the chickens.
