Chicken Runs, Gardens & No Time for Knitting

The guys just finished digging out the chicken run and are now at Home Depot getting supplies.  We'll line the bottom, top and all sides with hardcloth to keep out any predators.  Eventually, we'll add a partial metal roof to keep rain out.  We'll design the run so that we can add sides of plywood to keep snow and wind out, too.

The weather's so nice today, that it was perfect for hanging out laundry!

The girls are doing great and growing like crazy.  I'm having to clean out their brooder box much more frequently now.

They are extremely camera shy and always head to a corner!

The lettuce is doing so well that we might get to eat some tomorrow for dinner.  I've still got the screen top over it, so it's a bit hard to see in the photo.

Monday the girls will be 2 weeks old and pictures are sure to be posted that evening!
