I bet by the title of this post you thought I was talking about yarn. But no, hubby got to do some stash busting yesterday when we built a permanent run for the 'girls'.
He has wood, screws/nails, and various odds and ends of ironmongery in his 'man cave'. He can usually put his hands on what he needs. Its a case of "you never know when that will come in handy" with him. I call it junk or a huge mess........ anyway back to the run.
The only item purchased for this run was a roll of chicken wire which cost £32.00, and we still have a fair bit left. The project took the whole of the day to build and install. It was good to work on something together. There were only a few cross words, which was a bonus. I even got to dig a post hole, just to prove that I could.
We gave the girls the run of the garden whilst we got on, though they did need to be steered away from the veg patch a few times!
Today I spent the afternoon painting the gate and posts. One thing I learnt is not to wear "crocs" with inquisitive chickens about. My toes appeared to be very appealing, forcing a footwear change mid job!!
Anyway here is the finished run complete with some Harley Davidson bunting (found this in his man cave, it was liberated from a rally a few years ago, some beer had been drunk), hopefully the flapping will distract any would be predators
Not a bad days work if I say so myself and hopefully the girls will enjoy the extra space to run around
