    I finally got them in the garden... It is already in weeds but they are helping out. I just finished painting the greenhouse and "Roo Dude" my rooster has green paint on his back.

    Nice fall day for it.

    Nice! They'll have a great time "tilling" (and fertilizing) it all for you.

    I love the windmill, too! [​IMG]

    Very nice. I love how they all are piled up in the corner thinking you have a treat for them! [​IMG]

    Lovely!! My question is how the heck did you get those T posts in? And how tall are they??? Might be something handy I can use at some point.

    Thanks, everyone.

    Jill, you are so right: they come running and skidding around the corner to get some bread! That is how I "herd" them. Ha..

    Seriously, the garden is new this fall. The t-posts are 8 feet tall, sunk in about 1.5 feet. The wooden posts are 10 ft. tall sunk about the same. I still have to stretch wire around the wooden posts. Deer eat everything around here... but not my new garden...[​IMG]

    You use a metal thingie that slips over the metal post and pound it in.

    Ellie, what a lovely place you have! What a treat for your chickens! I would say that is pretty close to chicken heaven. I got tickled at the BO who is booking along behind the others! I see that all the time with my girls!

    If you are going to pound in t posts, it helps to stand on a ladder.

    Wow! I thought that greenhouse was your coop! Karen

    When we lived on LINY, we had a major deer problem. I remember having 80 rosebushes, and my parents were on their way from Florida, and I was so proud, and the night before they got there, the deer ate all the roses! I cried. In the winter, they used to eat the yews around the house, and poop all over the sidewalk. That's when I put up electric fence. I call deer large rats.
