Okay, we are finally done with the covered run over the Polish Pen breeding pen. Three days of hard labor and my precious chickies are safe from the bob cats.
I am calling the new run the chicken church because I felt like an Amish Farmer as we raised the roof one truss at a time.
I'd like to thanks my friend and carpenter Brian for an amazing job, and my good friend Maylynn who is always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. I keep teasing her that I will eventually turn her into a Farmer - she does not believe me... Roof going up over the rare and exotic pen. The Bob Cat has claimed 35 beauties from this pen since June. We tried raising the fence from 6' to 9' and adding a hot wire and the cat just climbed over, so we had to resort to a roof. Unfortuantely, this means the chickens will have limited access to the hillside until the cat realize there's no more chicken ala carte here.
