[day 318... nov 14]

Hen House Take 3! I tell you, these hens are an "evolving" project. Decided the blue tarp walls weren't really going to keep them snug when the temperatures drop and the snow comes, so Dad to the rescue: built them a nice, cozy hen house to add to the tractor.

It got a little complicated figuring out how to get the house *into* the tractor, and then get all the chicken wire, doors, etc. back in place. But it was successfully accomplished today by Grandpa and his trusty carpenter assistant Tynor.

Now I just have to convince the hens to go in there to roost! So far they seem inclined to roost in their nesting boxes. Not a good plan...
