    We have these two sheds that we were not using. My husband took one and cut the sides out and put the chickens in it. Right now it sits at the front of the backyard. We have a huge garden area that we are letting go fallow this year. We decided that we are going to move that shed to the garden area and put up a stronger fence and let the chickens go wild! I will be sure to take lotsa pictures as we do this. Dan plans on doing it the old fashioned egyptian way. One will be on the lawn mower dragging it while the other two will be putting logs under neath it. I can't wait. Even tho the anconas are about 4 weeks old they are still small. I hope they can't get out of the wire still. Eeh. I better talk to my hubby about that. Maybe putting some extra wire down the bottom of the fence.

    Yeah and I came up with this brilliant idea. Our other shed will have a back door on it so I don't have to worry about a gate and fighting the dogs.
