So.

WHY IS IT COLD OUT NOW.

We finally finished the coop (where 'finished' means 'the chickens can live there now' rather than 'there is no more work to be done') and moved them in yesterday without accounting for how cold it would get. THEY WERE SHIVERING THIS MORNING. I am a terrible chicken parent.

I put their heat lamp in there today so they should be okay now.

So, the girls are getting a bit too big for their outing-box now...they're also a bit smarter and less likely to take off at full pelt across the yard. So yesterday we took them out in small groups and let them scratch around in the front garden.

I took about a million photos. )

They're 3.5-4 weeks old now, and were going a bit stir-crazy with all the bad weather, so we took advantage of the few moments of sun today to take them out again. I took a bunch of videos of course )

So the coop project has officially begun!

What we did today:

  • decided on and purchased some coop plans
  • revised pasturing/lawning plans (we are going to put up a permanent fence rather than the temporary one, because we found out it would be very cost-ineffective to keep replacing the wire, which would tear frequently)
  • moved hosta plants that were in the way


I even took photos )
