Chicken Adventures....

Posted on by Tim Livingstone


Chickens have been outside for a couple weeks now, but I've been a bit slow getting the pictures up on the blog.  They caused us some difficulty in getting them outside...

Here was the plan.  Move the chickens out of their house into their outside pen, move the house out of the barn, then let the chickens go into their house again from the other end of the pen.  Sounds simple?

We got home after an evening meeting to find almost all 200 chickens had gotten out of their pen and were back in the barn where their house had been.  Even though their house was open to the pen outside, almost none were in their house.  We had to carry them in ones, twos, and threes from the barn into their house.  Bruce thought it was lots of fun to catch and carry the chickens, but it was definitely not a part of the plan....

Here are a few more photos of moving the house.
