Fine spring weather, BBQ and Chicken Coop update

image

The good weather of early spring is here and perfect BBQ weather.

Today I finally got round finishing the laying boxes for the chickens.  Bar a ramp we’re now ready for them. We did end up sacrificing the automated door which still doesn’t yet work. But it works well enough on manual so we’ll go with that so I get fresh eggs for ice ream making in the summer.

Completely over engineered – the material bill was about £8. The blocks on the cleaning and inspection hatches work as both handles and lock for the doors. One turns and rests on the other to make sure they don’t accidently open on their own.

The roosting bars are Sanded down to allow the chickens to comfortably perch of they want to.

Of course when we finally mounted the nesting boxes we found out didn’t fit. So I had to re-engineer the wire doors.

After our green house clean up the seeds Helen planted are coming along well and the mangetout is already well underway!

Strangely another creature is taking over the garden now…
