With a slight break in the temps this weekend, my very talented husband finished the new addition to our mini farm! My brother had given us a set of cages he received for free from a friend of his, and my husband's mind started working!
Here are the cages as we received them:
We then decided to move the location of Oreo and Daisy's cage in order for the larger addition to fit in this location well! We also had this small dog fence on our property as well. It had some vining weeds growing through it and my daughter worked to remove those. We are not sure if we like the fence in this area or not, we are giving it some time to see if it grows on us. If we keep the fence there, it will be an area for the bunnies to get some exercise and somewhat of a safe haven for the chickens. My husband had mentioned something about eventually building an enclosed area here, instead of using the fence.
Here is a picture of the finished project. This is the front of the area!
Here is a picture of the back of the area. As you can see my husband has built boxes on each side of the new addition! To the left will be the "chicken coop", complete with nesting boxes for the egg layers! We plan on creating a ladder for the chickens so that they can enter and exit their coop!
Last but not least, here is the newest addition to our farm, Dusty. He is a buck that we picked out from our favorite farm, 3G Farms! A special thanks to them for their contribution to this new addition!
