Chicken Update

Well, we're down to 8 chickens. 3 roosters (steve/paul/new one), and 5 hens, 4 of our original 5, and 4 new ones. We lost our broody hens from last year, which is the most irritating thing.

I upgraded the back chicken walls to 4' wire. Hopefully that will help keep the coyotes out of the run. But the chickens still fly over it and go out foraging.
Oh well, we'll see what happens...

Oh and we had a shift in regime. Steve is now the head rooster, Paul is the 2nd. Steve wupped Paul's ass and took the crown.. Its funny seeing Paul off by his self moping...
