We finished the second coop!

Our box chickens are out of the box! We’ve got them in their movable coop so they’re protected from hawks, skunks, coyote, etc. but still get access to the world.

Our local hawk population would LOVE to sample some chicken.
Those brown leghorns are serious about roosting high (see earlier post about getting them out of the trees). In the other coop it took Tacky weeks to decide to roost high and she is the only one I’ve seen up there. These birds night 1, hour 1 they were right up there wrestling for spots. One tried to sit right on top of the other. Much squawking all around! Of course, the three other empty poles would never do…!
Goodnight, chickens.
