The new, improved henhouse–it’s still

The new, improved henhouse–it’s still screened in, with chicken wire or hardware cloth buried all around the perimeter, and now it has a concrete floor where the dirt floor was before (on the right.) You’d think that would be enough to protect our girls, but oh, no. The shed itself is so ramshackle that we felt that it would only be a matter of time before a board fell loose or a piece of roofing came apart or something happened to allow entry by determined varmits. So they’ll be able to run around this henhouse and the adjacent run during the day and enjoy plenty of protection, but at night, they are going into The Vault, shown here in its closed position.
