Extending the Kingdom

The chicken kingdom has finally been extended and bets can currently be placed as to how many minutes/hours/days it will take for the chickens to find a way out of it!  The other question is whether they will dig under or fly over the fence first.  And if they don't do either of those, whether it will be a ferret or a cat which has a snack first..... 
The fence is all a bit rough, but I am just happy that they will be able to move around a little more and eat all my weeds - saving me both weeding time and money for feed.

  2. They obviously prefer outside to inside the original fence - unless they have been banned from inside

  3. how are they going? we are still having preditor issues. >_<

  6. Just discovered your blog. Enjoy reading about rural life. My son, DIL and GS live in Kagoshima. Have visited many times, but never seen much of the rural life. Looks beautiful! I'm amazed at how much you do for your family and others. Keep blogging. Hope you are feeling much better.

  7. Recently found your blog and have enjoyed reading about your family, Japan and your businesses. Hope you are well and the hospital stay is in the past.
