CHICKENS READY TO ESCAPE
For the past week our chickens have been living on our porch in a kiddie's wading pool that no longer holds water but was an excellent home for day old chicks. As they grew we added height to their home with strips of cardboard.
But now they are getting bigger, growing feathers and wanting to perch on any high point they can reach; it's time for a new home.
Tomorrow with Kate and Owen's help we will move them down the hill to our enclosed chicken coop where they can move about as they please. It may be a challenge getting all 32 chicks there in one load, but we will try.
Watch for more picture after we get that job done.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
