so this done, we got the chickens and put them in with a little divider wall: below
Baco met the chicks.
they got bigger, and we kept putting off making our chicken run due to: life
so we made a little outdoor enclosure for them and put them outside every day.
they got bigger and bigger....
watering system, totally failed. the nipples were cheap from china and this was taken down even after four attempts.
so we dug the run area up.
quite a dig.
started building.. and here is where we failed to take pictures.. but some completed chicken run pictures follow.
there are actually gutters(fabric wrapped sand) running under the 2x12 in the ground, so that they do not rot as much as possible. the gutters drain the water away (and have large amounts of stones wrapped in fabric to fill the run on the lower side to guide water to the gutters)
