Can’t believe its been 84 days. I need to be taking more photos. Just a note that I’ve only spent about $40 in feed.
These little raptors are getting bigger. Just to think these guys ancestors were most likely dinosaurs.
So we needed a way to protect the chickens and rabbits from other animals. The plan was to create a border around the fence with chicken wire. This will prevent the rabbits from digging out and other animals from digging in.
I picked up some tent stakes yesterday from Harbor Freight for about $2 a pack and some chicken wire from Tractor Supply a little while ago. Today we got out and installed it, below is the result. Also from Harbor Freight is a 10’x12′ net I got for $30 with a 20% off coupon to cover the top of the kennel to prevent hawks from getting in.
Next step is to build the hanging cages for the rabbits.
Chickens we’re getting too big for the box so we upgraded to larger rubber tub. They quickly found their way out this one too so I had to come up with a way to contain them. This is just a temporary measure until all of the winter weather has pushed out and the kennel is fully setup.
I cut the middle of the lid out and sandwiched chicken wire between 2 sets of 2 1×4’s then screwed them together.
