[day 63 ... march 4]

We are so lucky: Grandpa Stan is making a chicken tractor for our hens-to-be! He's building it almost completely from scraps and extras in his shop, following some design ideas that I found on the City Chicken Web site (which he told me about, BTW :-).

I was thinking of a much simpler arrangement that would basically keep the hens safe from raccoons and dry and warm, but Dad added nest boxes and a door that closes on the front of the hen-house part and other niceties. It's looking fabulous!
