So I've spent the last hour or so talking to my husband about our coop and pen design...( the coop is huge and the pen is too small, well, not for the four birds we have, but you have to plan for some chicken math ) Anyway, he just drew me out a great design for expanding the run around the side of our house and told me to go stake it out tomorrow!!! I'm so happy! He's on board! I was sure he thought I was going crazy over these chickens, but obviously he has his own designs in mind! Hooray!!!! Oh, but the only problem is, I already have an 8 foot fence for their original pen, and my 5 1/2 month old pullet constantly flies over it. He says we need to clip her wings....I don't really want to do that, because I enjoy her back door visits...(and her in house visits I keep secret from him But to construct an expanded run all around the other side of my house at 8 foot tall will be quite a feat! Wish me luck!
