|starting to frame in the new chicken house. 3/23/13|
Each area will be divided from the others on the inside, giving me 8x12 foot sections to work with. One section will be open for the laying flock and the other two sections will be divided up into breeding pens.

I thought I had some more pictures of this building in progress but I'm not finding them. Well I'll show you how far along I am now.
|Progress as of Aug 31, 2013|
|The Layer's section in progress.|
That big wad of Mylar was given to me by a friend that received some equipment wrapped in it. I'll be stapling it up on the rafters to help deflect some of the heat from the tin roof.
|two breeding pens in progress|
I am putting in a pop door in each section now, even though it will be a bit before all of the outside pens are finished. But this way I won't have to come back and cut holes in the walls later. I can just screw a piece of wood over the ones I don't want to use right now, until pens are built and I install sliding doors in the spaces.
Right now I"m trying hard to get the layer's section finished so I can move some young pullets in there. I've been sorting out a batch of birds and will only keep a few, the rest will be for sale. Moving out the ones I want to keep will make that easier. I'll just have a pen of birds that need to go to new homes.
