a new phase

This was the next logical step for me in my movement towards raising as much food as I can. The coop on the property was last used 4 years ago, now seemed like the right time to get it back in working order and breathe some life back into it. I introduced 12 pullets on Tuesday and as of last night all was well. They endured a nigh time temperature of around 9 degrees on there first night and even had there first predator checking out the new kids on the block. There was snow so tracking was easy. My best guess is a coyote or fox. I did what I can do to secure the coop, in my experience you can never fully grasp what a hungry animal will go through to eat. Hopefully there are eggs in about 2 months, but never count your chickens right.
