    The flock has been moved to temporary outside digs in a stall of the barn. I just hope it is safe!
    I took three pieces of a chain link dog pen and then used the back of the stall for the 4th side. I then lined the sides with chicken wire and topped it all with a double layer of wire. We are also closing and locking the stall door. Had to close the door because the horse across the aisle was sure they were Horse Eating CHickens [​IMG]
    We are leaving here in a bit and will be back late, sure hope the kids are secure.

    Sounds like they are tucked in safe and sound. Try not to worry.

    THe "Kids" were all safe and sound when we got home last night.
    Other than my Jack Russells fussing over them this morning they were all quiet.
    I added Perches to the pen this morning and am going to try and catch them some bugs and worms later.
