At last, a cattle grid for chickens!



After months of having the girls follow me down the path every time I leave the garden, I have made my own cattle grid.  It completely threw them as they could see me stepping over it but couldn't follow me.  

You may ask why I don't just shut the gate, well, Charity is so small she slips through so my new invention is doing the job, may just patent the idea, I could make a fortune!

    1. Hi Rachy, the girls have all that to roam about in and still want to follow me down to the patio where there is nothing for them, bonkers they are. x

  2. Ooooh, I don't know, Di. Your girls look like they are hatching out a cunning 'overcoming the cattle grid' plan! They look like hens who are getting the measure of a situation and they won't give up until they solve it. My bet is on pole vaulting!

    1. I think you could be right Dense, or they may roll over like the sheep started to. I will have to monitor the situation carefully I think. x

  4. The coop is huge and very, very heavy. We're not worried about it blowing away. The roof is drilled through plastic onto into the wood, so it's pretty secure, too. chicken coop plans We've had a few big storms since we built it, but I am worried about hurricanes. Fingers crossed!
