Instead of heading to the beach, my family decided to use this Memorial day weekend to get some work done on building a new chicken pen.
I started off the day with my favorite three ingredient crepes topped with apple chunks and dried cherries.
I promise there are crepes under all of the toppings…
Then we got to work on the new pen. Perry and one of Claire’s friends came over to help the work go faster. The pen we currently have is mostly just chicken wire draped around some poles, topped with netting. It is very cumbersome to open and taller people have to crouch down once inside because of the height of the netting.
Inside the garage, the girls worked on staining the boards.
At the end of our work day, the pen had not changed much-but a lot of work had been done!
Today we are working on it some more and hopefully will have more visible changes to report 🙂
