Poor Berta.... keep in mind , this is a 4 foot fence. Actually, the coop is unusable right now for obvious reasons, so the girls are in the winter condo. They have a cozy stall in the barn and free range when we do chores. They won't step one foot outside, heaven forbid they get their little tootsies in the snow They even have an indoor dust bath. DH loves them too ! how many more months until spring ?
