Hi Tweva the girls WERE in heaven, living the idyllic free range life that, apparently, leads to their ultimate end as tasty meals for turkey vultures and red tailed hawks. I will have to work on a larger enclosure where they can range while I’m away during the afternoon.
Here is a picture of the chicken run that I built , 30 x 40, uncovered , with the chicken coop there in the middle. But the girls got wise and flew the coop after a month or two. I left them to free-range around the backyard after that.
Later this year or next spring I’ll do the work on the extended covered chicken run inside the fence there. That silly water tower that I built didn’t workout either. Trial and error, for everybody, right?
