Day 178 – Chicken Run


I went outside to check on the chickens.  Garbanzo has been obsessive about their safety lately.  Not that I blame him, but it was getting pretty bad recently.  Since he was gone, I figured I should assume chicken duty.

I found them in the front yard which means they were out of their run.

Guess we have a real live Ginger and Mac from the movie.  They had snuck out and were grazing in the yard digging up the grass, I might add.

Notice behind them.  Can you see the chicken wire?  They are really supposed to be behind it – not on this side of it.  They snuck under the wire.  Yeah, a more permanent solution will be occurring on Thursday when I have the day off.  I have a couple of solutions to this problem.  Now I just need to find where Garbanzo put my drill.

    Not to be a killjoy, but keeping chickens in a coop is all but impossible. For about three weeks we had about a dozen laying hens.. And they were probably in their Fort-Knox-of-a-coop about half that time.. Never did really figure out how they were getting out towards the end.. But, they kept pooping on the car, so they had to go..

What do you think?
