Getting ready for the chickens

Leave a comment

Thank God Jake is charge of the planning phase, because he is amazing at it! Here’s the work he did on the backyard to get it ready!

Drain was cleared and covered, this space always backs up and because of the mosquito issue we had last year, eradicating the standing water will hopefully help a lot! The compost bin and several piles of compost and different phases will provide fertilizer and soil!

The swing set and hammock are in the far corner away from the electric fence (more on that tomorrow!), waiting patiently for warm and here to stay weather!

and Jake finished assembling the coop yesterday! So excited to get those baby chicks! This coop smelled absolutely amazing when we opened the boxes!! We opted for The Rambler chicken coop. After extensive research Jake found the reviews, price and ease of assembly to be the motivating factors for this coop. When we move to the farm we’ll likely build some chicken tractors and a larger coop for our layers.
