I had to call my DH out to the coop today. Stella and Lola had dug a hole any big dog would have been proud of. There was dirt kicked out of the coop, (it has hardware cloth 12" all around the bottom because of our ferocious heat in summer). That hole was about a foot and a half deep. Silly girls. I told my DH that we need to fence in a big garden spot complete with flight netting to protect against hawks and get 50 chickens to till it up for us before we plant.
