7/28/10 We continue to struggle with watching the chickens while they are outside. Even with the carrier helping us get them back inside it is a struggle to get them in the carrier and we have to watch them to make sure they don’t wonder into the neighbors yards. I have been looking into one of those outside kid play castles and was shocked by how expensive they were. We ended up just using the lattice fence from the old pen and putting it up against the shed. The funny thing about the chickens is their total lack of interest in escape. They could easily get out of this pen or the basement pen but generally they have very content to stay where there is food!
