Burns Flat in southwest Oklahoma
I raised Rhode Island Reds years ago but moved to Norman, OK. When our son and family moved out of state recently, I inherited 2 hens - an Australorp and a Silver Laced Wyandotte. They lay 2 eggs daily and are very happy in our lush, urban backyard with huge trees. But we’re soon moving to southwestern OK where there are no trees and multiple predators. I probably won’t be able to let them roam free. Any ideas for what to use for fast-growing shade? Thanks!

Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow

Cute photo, 💗your birds are adorable! For now, things like picnic tables make good shade, you can build shade with lumber, lean-tos and such, just make sure it's heavy enough and won't topple over in wind or if they try to get on top.

Enjoy your new flock and welcome to ours!
