    Today is my girls first day in their new run.
    Hope to finish the coop in a few days.

    The neighborhood ROO is already courting.
    Does anyone recognize his breed?

    As an aside, how do I keep the stinker out of my tomatoes in a few weeks?
    I am not sure where he is supposed to live.

    Thanks,
    Christie

    [​IMG];) Being free range he is hard to get close to - unless he decides to walk in my direction. I will keep trying for a better pic

    He's handsome. Coop is nice too.

    He's a bio-security threat though. Time to start looking for his owners. [​IMG]

    My chickens were getting into my raised beds so I put some 1'' x 2'' 2 ft tall fencing around them. Chickens haven't been a problem since. Electro net would work well too!
