Today was moving day. The snow is finally gone from our little acre, so today we moved the chickens from their winter garden spot to their summer space in the lower part of our back yard. The Boy was quite proud of his DYI wheels. Just sayin'. He did most of the heavy hauling and I documented the event, as you can see. But hey, I did some lifting, pushing and lugging too, but mostly coop traffic control.
The ladies were curious (as they tend to be) about the changes and the homemade wheels.
Once one side of the pen was removed and the ladies wandered off, the ark started its journey south. Literally.
We live on a south-facing slope, and their summer location is peppered with above-ground maple roots, so positioning the ark so it was level and the door would properly open was important. Don't want undue stress on those hinges, ya know.
So, no … the door won't fall and lay nicely.
Gotta move it touch this way.
And a touch that way.
A little forward.
And that should do it.
Does the door open nicely?
Next up is the fencing around the main vegetable garden so I can start planting seed and putting in some seedlings … without the ladies helping themselves to the delicious, young greens and scattering the seed wherever they're inspired to scratch.
So, yeah … moving day. That's what I (we) made today. Peace.
