Well it finally is starting to feel like Spring in Alaska. Even though last Saturday I woke up to this.
We ended up picking up 5 new chickens a few days ago. More than I really wanted, but the lady was giving them away so we took them all. I'll have some happy friends once out stockpile of fresh eggs is replenished and I start giving them away.
I also realized that the coop is now too small for 5 chickens let alone 6 if and when I can get Nascar in the new flock, so I'm working on a new coop.
I ordered some very large caster tires to help make the coop a little more portable and easier to move around the yard. I'll post on that progress once I get it a little more done. I finished the base frame last night and my wheels shipped from Amazon so maybe by this weekend I'll be able to really start building.
The one main addition I want is to add nesting boxes and I've increased the overall inside dimensions of the coop by over a foot in each direction. My goal is to build a coop one person can move and my hope is the nesting boxes prevent egg breakage.
That's all from the farm for now.
