Chicken Wagon, phase one

Andy is hard at work building a wagon for our chickens. This will allow us to run them out in the grass and pasture, ideally with some cattle or sheep. He’s been reading a lot of books about design and came up with what you see below. He started with an old wagon frame purchased from a local farmer and installed a base and supports.


The kids were excited to help so Andy showed them how to drill holes. He then gave them some scraps and they made “connect the dots” puzzles with the drill.
    

Here is Andy with the walls up, and the kids playing in it with the floor and door on.
