    Today I decided to let the chickens play in a part of the garden that is overgrown with Spring flowers. They had a great time!!

    Here are some photos.

    Spartacus loves to watch the chickens. He can sit for hours and just watch them.


    This is Olivia, I am thnking this photo needs a caption, but, my brain is overworked from Hebrew class tonight.


    This is Roxanne taking a dust bath. They all took turns using that spot today.


    Here are Roxanne, Rosalind and Olivia just having fun.


    And here are Rosalind and Olivia, I guess I didn't get a photo of Ophelia today!!

    British Columbia,
    I LOVE your chicken tractor!!! I've been thinking of building one with PVC *exactly* like this!!! Could you share the process and/or plans with me? I'd be so delighted if I could actually make it by myself (not a spacial thinker, lol). Oh, please, could you, would you???

    We would like to extend the area that our flock uses too. Great pictures! [​IMG]

    Quote:HMMMM, my husband built the PVC structures, I have two of them, one is more permanent, covered with metal chicken wire.. Originally, they were made to keep the dogs out of the raised bed gardens I have in the backyard.

    Let me see if I can "reverse engineer" it for you. Next week I will take a few good photos of them, then put in the measurements. and count the number of angles etc.

    If it were being made today, I would have him make it taller, so I wouldn't have to bend down to go through the door. But four feet tall, on the sides, fits nicely for rolls of chicken wire.
