Work in progress

This is Chicken House #2 after two days of work! I helped with the measuring and leveling--and apparently got it within a sixteenth of an inch (!). Then yesterday our friend S. helped the s.o. with the framing. The s.o. says there's about two more days of work to do.

As with Chicken House #1, this one has a floor fully lined with hardware cloth to prevent any pests chewing their way in. The right-hand portion (the part furthest away in the pic) will be a brooder house, and then the main part will be for adult chickens, with doors out into two pasture pens. The windows and door and a lot of the lumber were salvaged; the door is the thing you see leaning against the back wall.

Very, very excited. New chicks are coming soon!
