Coop

The chicken coop is still a work in progress.  The fencing crew sat the poles and after a couple of days were able to put the fence up.  The gates should be in this week and they will also put the barb wire around the top.

I planted honeysuckle along the fence on the north side of the chicken pen.  Honeysuckle are excellent cover for fences, fast growing, attracts hummingbirds, and so fragrant. I chose 3 different varieties, Hall's Japanese, which has whitish-yellow flowers, Goldflame honeysuckle with a beautiful purple to deep pink buds open to golden yellow tubular flowers that are bright pink outside, and Mandrin honeysuckle that are orange red flowers with pale orange interiors. What hummingbird could resist that!?! Luckily I didn't have to dig the holes, Austin (the fencer) used his Cat skid loader with a post hole digger.  Thank you so much Austin!
