First Update on Chicken and Rabbit project

So here is an update.  We took all the old rotting wood off and replaced it with new boards.  This first picture is the whole area in the back.  The closed off section is for the chickens and the open area is for the rabbits.  We still need to put up some chicken wire and replace one sheet on the roof.  As you can see from this picture it is bent and torn from the wind. 
We are also making an outside area for the chickens to come outside during the day.  We still have a mess out there but little by little it is getting done. 
It is really looking good.  Middle son has been going out there on his own and getting a few things done here and there.  He is looking forward to having his own animals.  Of course, I am looking forward to the eggs and meat.  

In the garage we have four of the cages already done and ready to take outside as soon as it all gets done. 
So there you have it.  My middle son is enjoying being outside and working now that the weather is not hot yet.

It's looking real good out there guys! Good job on going out on your own, middle son.

I laughed out loud when you said you were looking forward to "the eggs and meat"! hahaha How long are you planning on keeping these animals? haha

Anyway, looking forward to seeing the continued progress of your project. :)
