    So in prep for Hurricane Irene I was going through options in my head to protect the little flock. Was considering bringing the coop into the garage but it is pretty involved to move it. Anyway, I had some extra plywood hanging aroung so I threw up a makeshift Chicken Hurricane Shelter in the garage. Worked out nicely. The Roo had us all up for a few minutes around 5:30 when he decided to make a few crows, but he piped down after a couple of minutes and everyone got some needed sleep. Everyone faired well.
