My girls are apparently bored! We went out to feed them, collect eggs, and did a quick security check around the run fence. Some enterprising ladies have just about dug out the inside of the fence and in the areas we had already re enforced with brick pavers they have started digging under those! Sheesh! Their coop and run are on a hill so with the girls digging up the soil the rain just washes it out of the run and down the hill! Guess it's a good thing we had planned on using our tax return to add onto their run and build raised beds all around the outside! The intent was to add a layer of protection from the outside to keep the predators out, now its going to be a layer to keep the girls in! Guess I'm going to need two truck loads of sand for run repairs! The run extension is going to have a Chicken playground in it, roosts at different heights, ramps to climb over and under, a place to hang fruits and vegies for them to peck at and enough room for another kiddie pool filled with sand for a dustbath. That should keep them from getting bored!
