Chicken Independence

In the pursuit of independence from the folks at Tyson Chicken, Scott has begun to build a chicken tractor to house chickens of our own. A chicken tractor, for those of you who don't know, is portable housing for chickens. It allows them to "free-range" without being attacked by predators. There is no floor, so the chickens are able to scratch the ground and eat all the goodies they find there.

This photo shows the nesting box end, where the hens will lay eggs and we will collect them.

Nicholas and Dad, working together on adding the chicken net. Nicholas wasn't about to let go of that popsicle, either. It was a hot afternoon!
