My 4 girls got a much better space to roam in this past weekend. Here's what they had to begin with: The run portion of this predator-proof run is 8 X 12 = 48 Sq Ft. Then they had this: This expanded "day time" (non-predator-proof) run area added 20 x 3 = 60 Sq Ft for a total of 108 Sq Ft. This past weekend they got this: We enclosed the entire garden area with aviary netting. Now they have an extra 37 X 23 = 851 Sq Ft of "run" space on top of the original 48 Sq Ft of original predator-proof run for a grand total of 899 square feet of "run" space. Yahoo!! The girls and I are very happy. The garden accessibility will flux as I start planting. I'll have to block them from certain planting areas but they should still have nothing to complain about even then. And this way I can also plant some space with them in mind - let something like kale (which they love) grow big enough and then let them have at it. Any suggestions for live plantings for the girls?
