Hardware Cloth and Lots of it!
Don and Clora spent the day buttoning up the chicken coop in the goat barn. They put hardware cloth over the windows and lined the entire underneath with hardware cloth (wire mesh) to secure it against predators. It was a very tedious job!
You can see the wire hardware cloth over the floor joists.
They got the door cut out and trimmed. Don installed a recycled glass door from an old wooden slider. I neglected to get a photo after the door was in.
He was pretty tired at the end of the day and I had a nice dinner of local grass fed NY strip steak, roasted rosemary potatoes, sweet corn and salad waiting for him when he was done. If all goes well the chickens should be moving into the barn tomorrow. Fingers crossed ;-)
