The start of a new month. I love this time of year. We finished the coop and run over the weekend, what a job. Our run is 16′ by 24′ I decided to go with sand in the run. We installed 1,000 pounds of all purpose sand and mixed in 500 pounds of pea gravel. I installed hooks out side in the run to hang food and water from during the day. We set up a grit station and a box in the corner for dust bathing. I have some very happy chickens. Things are finely starting to come together. Now if the hens start laying egg that will be a blessing.
