Coop @ de Acres

I had not raised any chickens in over 8 years, so a few weeks ago I decided to get some baby chicks. First I had to get a coop. I went to Tractor Supply and purchased a rabbit hutch. The hutch had one inch wire which was not going to work. I left the wire, but attached 1/4" wire cloth to keep the snakes out. I then placed over the hutch bird cloth. Yes, bird cloth does wonders at keeping snakes out of the chicken coop. There is plenty of space for the snakes to roam free and field mice to eat, but in my little space of territory; it is not allowed.
