It’s been pointed out that my description of the chicken run makes little sense. I’ll try again. The coop is six feet long, so the extra run is 6’x4′ and the three boards are three sides, with the coop itself being the fourth side. Here it is.
It’s a great success, the chicks and Canasta are very happy. The chicks are over three weeks old now and they’re looking like miniature hens. Sadly, one of them keeps squaring up to another and it’s fairly clear that they’re cockerels. I say ‘one’ and ‘another’ but I’m not too good at telling brownish, speckledy birds apart and it could well be more than two. I’m sure we’ve got some girls anyway, though.
The brown and yellowish bit, bottom right corner, is where the run was last week.
