Fenceposts at the new house
In another attempt to debunk the "get hens for cheap eggs" myth, I'll share our new gate project at the new house. In a few weeks we'll be moving shop to another house in Bexley. Of course the ladies will be coming too, but there have been some necessary preparations to make a space that'll work for them. We're creating another fenced off chicken run area on the side of the house. Yesterday the contractor was out here in the cold digging fence post holes. By Monday evening we'll be chicken-ready. All for the bargain price of $800. How many Ohio Family Farm, organic, cruelty free, etc, eggs could we buy for that? Clearly we're not in this for the savings!!
