Insert new chickens here.

Baby chickens are arriving at the end of the month! Once the little guys and gals grow up, our flock will have roughly doubled in size. This new run will give them a lot more space, and we'll be able to subdivide it and separate some chickens.** The plants will have a fighting chance to grow without being scratched to death, too. So a win for chickens, win for plants...but look out bugs!
The gate is up, but I suppose we should finish the fence too.

**Why separate some chickens? For one thing, one of the new breeds is friendly, docile, and apparently "prone to bullying" by other chickens. More to come on these chickens with no lunch money.
