our girls have been out in their coop for two weeks now. they are getting bigger and bigger each week. it's nice to have their home completely built. my man built the coop out of a bunch of free pallets. our girls have caused quite the ruckus in our neighborhood.
they haven't been noisy and have been easy to care for, however, they have been a tease to all the different wildlife in our little area.
the other morning, our neighbor who lives behind us, saw a fox and her babies and a raccoon and her babies trying to have a little chicken dinner. luckily, our girls have not become dinner and my man did a good job making the coop like fort knox.
anyone have any tricks to keep the wildlife away?
this is betsy buttercup or bets for short. this is my little lady's favorite hen. we also started planting our early spring garden. i have broccoli, bok choy, cabbage, brussel sprouts, snow peas, sugar snap peas, spinach, carrots and onions planted.
i also spotted this nest by my kitchen window. the momma bird is hard at work and hopefully in a couple of days we will see some eggs.
