I am sitting in my potting shed typing on my wireless keypad, which is synced up to my iPad, which is managing to pick up Wifi from the house. Isn’t that cool?!
Did I mention that I’m sipping iced coffee and looking out at my chickens who have finally made it outside?! I am loving this.
At least it is until I have to try get the chickens to walk up the somewhat scary looking ramp to go into their “big girls” coop. Not looking forward to that. But they’ve settled in so nicely into the outdoors that I’m sure they’ll get the rest of it down to a routine in no time. This is the point where I wish I had a hen that’s been around the block to show them the ropes.
There was a whole lot of work that went on this weekend that led up to this point. Yesterday, Steve did the work of burying the wire mesh into the ground to help prevent predators from digging their way into the coop. First a trench was dug and part of the wire attached to the coop went into the trench.
