I do not need goats too. I do not need goats too. argh.
I have a chicken escape artist already from the brooder pen. And they are only 3 weeks old tomorrow. Man, do they grow FAST.
Y'know, *I* said that, too a few months ago. Now? We just laid out the Dairy barn....and are planning the best way to fence. :grin: The fresh butter/cheese/milk finally convinced me.
Chickens ARE escape artists. Make sure you use the smallest hole chicken wire possible - you might even have to double it. And fence the run higher than you anticipate them flying - one of my Red Leghorns can clear a 5' fence *easily*. :boggle:
They do grow fast - it's amazing! My pullets don't look like babies anymore.....at least I finally got pictures! Now I just need to post 'em....
