Chooks Ho!!….update #11

I’ve now finished the rear of the chook yard. The nestbox is in place and so is the wire. I’ve put the heavier 1 ” wire from the ground up to the level of the star pickets (a metre) and have put slightly thinner half-inch wire from there up to the top, mainly because it was easier to cut and bend into shape around the polypipe arches (it’s hard to see because it has a green plastic coating on it). I’m hoping a fox wont be able to chew through it:

Next job will be to put a gate on the other end of the yard, do some more planting around the outside and investigate different types of water container.

    I had the ‘proper’ water containers but now I just use empty ice cream containers. I have two just in case they tip one over, which has happened rarely.
