This blog isn’t the one where I’ve been posting about my farm, but this deserves a progress report.
Jordan’s Croft has a flock of laying hens as well as ducks and geese. Hatching eggs can’t get too cold. It stops the development of the embryo. Unfortunately, the walls of Chicken World are thin metal – any chill comes right through. So I started nailing up wood slats, to put an air pocket between the hens and the metal walls.
I got the first wall done – as you can see here:
The newly paneled short wall of Chicken World, with a nice nestbox. The hens really like that nest and use it several times a day. I guess the nest box didn’t show up in this picture.
The window was on the outside, and somehow it got pushed so hard the staples came out. So I had to move it to reduce the drafts. It needs work – but all of Chicken World will get a coat of whitewash when the walls are finished.
So – this is my project report for now.
