Chickens Keep on Giving

The chicken's have been re-positioned for the summer months to build me a new garden bed. As full grown layers, these Rhode Island Reds are doing a magnificent job tilling and fertilizing the space. During the month of June the weather has been in the high eighties and nineties, so I've had to keep ventilation going from both sides of the chicken house.

Ever since the raccoon attack last fall, I've been vigilant about locking them up at night. You can see that I've created a bit of a safety barrier in front of the rear entrance screen door. Yes, I a really determined raccoon could get past it and through my run too. However, instead of overly worrying, I've enlisted the aid of the nature divas and elementals to keep all in proper balance. A chicken's life in suburbia is all about balance of the land.
