The fall and winter flew by and I realized I hadn't posted since July. Today it is raining so I won't be taking photos, but the chickens are doing fine. We have 5 laying hens who are working out well. Two are hatchlings from last summer and three are ones who have been with us for 2+ years. The latest improvement has been a diy automatic coop door opener with a light sensor. When it starts to get light in the morning, it opens (saving me having to get out of bed at 6am.) They've even stopped squawking in the morning to get out! Then at dusk when they've gone in to roost for the night, the door closes. This makes both everyday and vacation care of the coop a lot easier.
