We did open the pop door but no one was very excited about making the leap. To no one's surprise the first out the door was the ever adventurous Laverne. She went down the ramp a couple of times but never ventured off the stump. I'm sure they'll love the run once they get over being terrified of it.
It was a sad day though. Pat went to his new home.
Edith the little BLRW pullet has never been away from him. She's out there now whining.
Guess she'll be ok in a day or two.
It takes them some time to venture into a space....great pic, love the peekers out the pop door!
Apron over grass looks good, should be able to mow right over it...unless you mow really short.
Just dawned on me, replacing the railroad ties over the other aprons effectively shortened your apron by the width of the tie,
as any digger will probably start digging at the edge of the tie instead of the run wall to go under.
Probably doesn't matter, since the garden on that side is already a decent buffer, but something to keep an eye on.
