It has been a long time coming but we finally have 3 chickens and a rooster. We built them a chicken run in the vegetable patch where we had put a 3 sectioned compost pile. We used a bunch of repurposed materials including the old poly tunnel door frames, small sections of wind fencing and some bits of salvaged wood. Now we can all get to know each other while we work in the vegetable garden and they work on fertilising our compost.
