Thursday I put some temporary fence posts in (the ground is either still frozen or there are a lot of rocks right by the coop because those 2 were hard to get in!) and covered them with the branches I had used over the strawberry beds. Miss Joy stayed right with them to make sure no one snuck out, and nothing else got in. I think it looks like something a castaway on a desert island would build - though hopefully theirs would be a bit more weather-tight!
I let them out this morning since we are supposed to have some rain this afternoon but after a couple of hours it was very hard to get them back inside. Twilight (the Barred Rock) got out of the enclosure after I missed her and Miss Joy caught up with her halfway across the lawn.
Construction of the real run starts this weekend, weather permitting!
