Week of the Chicken
G-man and I decided to alleviate the pecking issue by switching the roosting bar from the 6-foot width of the coop to the 8-foot wall. This meant the nesting boxes and storage cabinet had to move to the back of the coop.
I'm glad I picked today to do this chore. Yesterday was gorgeous in the PNW and I got lots of weeding done. Today is a different story entirely: rain followed by sprinkles, interspersed with copious amounts of precipitation and liquid sunshine. Then more rain. I'm so sick of the rain.
Granted, my garden has gotten very green and is recovering nicely from the damage visited upon it over the winter by 9 hungry beaks and 18 scratching feet. But I've planted parsnips thrice and none has come up. so. frustrating.
Anyway, before when you looked straight into the coop it was like this. The roosting bar along the 6-foot back wall and nesting box/storage on the left.
