This “building” was here when we bought the place. I’m not sure why it’s here or what they had intended to use it for.
It’s about 4′ wide and 12′ long. He’s thinking he’ll divide it almost in half . . maybe make one section 4′ x 5′ for the 5 bantams and the other section will be 4′ x 7′ for the 6 Dominiques.
Vince can fence off this area under the trees and split it up so they’ll each have a good sized run and some tree cover. We’ll probably have to cover it to keep them from flying over into the other’s run. Since we’re going to have roosters, we don’t want the bantams breeding with the Dominiques.
It’s not too far from the front of the house so when we’re sitting out on the porch, we could see the chickens and if there are roosters, and I’m sure there are, we won’t have any trouble hearing them crow. That’s a good thing . . at least for now! We may change our mind later about that.
There’s lots of work to be done to make it what Vince wants it to be but at least it’s a start and maybe if he can get the builder over here soon, they can get this thing made into a chicken duplex.
