Chicken Pen

Caption: A number of things have kept me busy lately and kept me from participating fully at WUG. One has been the construction of the outdoor pen for my chickens, which has turned into a much bigger project than I anticipated. Fortunately, husband and son have been helping, and all this pen needs now for completion is netting over the top, to keep predators out. Here, pullets gather around the chicken door, which is closed at night.

Thanks, Genie! We've already put four meat chickens in the freezer or in our stomachs!

I hope so, Elaine! Those younger chicks especially need to get out of their confined quarters, but I dare not let them out in this pen until we get the top on; otherwise they are just hawk candy, LOL! Thanks for commenting!

Thank you, Shirley! I am also posting a pic of one of the younger chicks, which is colored completely differently.

They have really grown up - Beautiful~
Your outside pen looks nice and is
important as they will get out and
hawks and other predators often are
in waiting for a good meal. Thank
you for sharing - nice photo series!
