HOMESTEAD UPDATE-BIGGER FLOCK NEEDS BIGGER RANGE

MY BEAUTIFUL NEW FLOCK

We went from 6 chickens...to 13. So, the setup we had before would not work anymore. A quick trip to town and we grabbed the fence that was at the townhouse.

BEFORE...

Our chickens were able roam the entire property as free range chickens. This is due to the fact that we had raised them since they were baby chicks, and they would come when they were called. They also would roost on their own in the evening so there was no need to try to catch them.

Our new chickens however, we received grown and had never been allowed to roam free. So I decided I should build them a large yard for them to be able to eat and play.

I unrolled the fence and hooked it into the old fence, extending it and ran it through the forest and back to their coop.

So far they really seem to love their new yard...however, they try to roost there...instead of in the safety of the coop. So far now, until they figure things out, we will be having to put them in the coop each evening.

Yeah, I am doing great. I just observed that @doer-minnor auto curation is no longer curating my posts both here an other platform. Did you hault it?

Hmmm...no. but i also have not checked it in a long while. I also do not know how to set it for Steemit. Do you have a link to the Steemit auto voter?

Looks like the one for hive is back now.
