The chickens are still getting the extra-special treatment around here. They are so spoiled, I sure hope they appreciate it!
First of all, we upgraded their watering system. While I love the way the old-fashioned galvanized farm ones look, they are awful. Always dirty and a pain to clean and fill. Plus, they take up valuable floor space. SO, we fixed that:
Some PVC pipe, caps, poultry water nipples... which can be found here: Push in water nipples - you can also get screw in ones.
We made a smaller one for inside the coop too:
And! We began the chicken tractor. Half of it is done. It's a two part modular model. One part transportation unit, one part dockable foraging station. The foraging part fits in between my raised beds - and this is the part that is done:
The other half needs a roof and a handle, it's almost done. Pictures soon.
Oh, and one more - a cool vintage find I scored on Etsy:
Ok, so I'm a little spoiled too, how did I get so obsessed with chickens? Did you know you can even get chicken decals to put on the back of your car windows... you know, like the kind for your family and all your pets? Yeah, I know, that's probably taking things a little too far... even for me.
