A really nice size run, but that's some hostile looking territory for a chicken. I hope the girls can find a bug or too in those rocks, if they don't burn their tootsies first.
It's all we got around here! I'll be giving them some shade cloth. Works for the dogs, should work for the chickens.
There's actually a really, really small bird that has made a nest in the little rock wall there on the hill. I've watched it catch bugs and take it into the nest. When it gets into the nest, I hear it's little baby birds make noises. The bird is really small. Hopefully they'll grow up before I let the chickens loose in there.
