I stopped by the local lumber yard( I know I have a Sawmill) and there was a pile of 2x4's and 2x6's out front and I asked the price and they said $1.00 per stick. Well I sucked them up like a Kansas tornado in a trailer court. So this is the frame that sits on the ground. I made it 3' by 9' because that is how long the 2x4's were. I have $ 5.00 in lumber cost in these'.
Here are the Bantams. ( Bantys) . I think these are my favorite chickens. I am hoping the big chickens will get used to the little ones being in the pen and quit pecking them. Then I can let them out of their little prison.
Here is the traumatized rooster that a friend gave me. The hens were pretty tough on him. I found him hiding in the corner of the chicken house (the Cluck Mahal) with his head stuck behind a 2x4. I wasn't ready for him to do his roostering stuff yet so I will keep him separated.
So there is my story for the blog.
