    Holy hard work.... 12'x8'x8' 1/2" hardware cloth...metal roofing.... hens are loving it and the bunny has joined them... now to get the buggers to climb the ladder at night on their own...

    Hung a 30lbs feeder..and a 5 gallon bucket with chicken nipples...

    question however... feeder inside the hen house too?

    I put my feeder outside during hot weather, say 85 degrees and higher. The hens simply don't like to go in to hot coop to feed. If the weather forcast is calling for rain I will leave it in. If it happens to not rain and it doesn't cool off it's obvious the feed was barely touched.
