We have been busy over the weekend, with Dad and I building an extension to the chicken house to accommodate about another 6 hens. There is a poultry auction in the next town next Saturday so we wanted to make a bit more room in case we decide to purchase a few more hens for TGOG’s urban farm. Have a look at the movie that I took and put together to document the mammoth building effort we completed in just two days.
Just think. It took me 6 months to build the chicken run and house last year, and we build the extension in just two days. Pretty cool stuff, and all thanks to you Dad. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, and the heavy lifting that I wasn’t able to do.
The help of family is a blessing isn’t Gav.
Exciting that you might get some new hens/chooks.
Look forward to meeting them on your blog

Awwww….thats bloody awsum Gav! Well done Dad! It’s funny watching you guys on the blog dressed in trackies and Flanno shirts when we are up here in shorts and t-shirts.
We had a park meeting this morning on water restrictions and yes Dad the usual whingers had their say and tried to railroad the meeting but all in all we got good results. I mentioned the meeting because I am curious as to when you plan to put guttering on the chook house Gav and harvest the rain water from it so the birds can drink from their own fresh supply? Not such a silly idea! Waste not want not!
I see what you mean Gav! Looks great.

What a great extension to the chook house, all colour co-ordinated too.
Hope your chookies reward you with plenty of delicious cackle-berries.
Nice chook pen! We shoulda started small, like yours, so we could get some chooks in within the year. 😉
