We have been working up to this for some time. Plant community has been managed to provide better free-range habitat, a range of tools are in place for predator management, and now it is time for an actual barn. Currently all birds are in pens in field year round. Within 3 weeks I should have a barn capable of housing three flocks of American Dominiques, each with 25 hens. Photographs to made shortly will show current mess and progression to having a barn. At this point birds are difficult to see from house. Soon they will be visible directly and by using webcams. A lot of work ahead but will be fun. Even picked out a farm name for registration with county.
