Thanks for the info. Nice coop! Your girls are livin large. Come mid December or so we plan to move the tractor to the part of the garden we're cover cropping, then let them have access to a little of it at a time. Maybe it will last a little longer that way. I can't believe what 4 chickens can do to 100 square feet of pasture in 24 hours. They can pretty much take it down to bare ground. Amazing! We seem to be headed in the same direction with our girls.
