Finally open for business 🙂

 

 

This is the new chicken coop – the first part of the new barn to be completed. I cannot tell you how happy we were after almost three months of having our chickens in temporary housing to finally put them in their new home.  Out to the left is their outside area which is surrounded by poultry wire to give them a safe place to scratch and peck in the outside.  The new barn is being constructed inside the perimeters of the pasture so once the fencing is done and the gates are up, the chickens will be able to free range in the pasture.

Using this we do not have to go inside the coop to collect eggs.
Here they come!

Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
