Day 1 was a big success but there is still a lot to do. We still need a stand for the chook house but we need to work out how high it should be and how we're going to build it. The first thing was to find some good solid legs for the stand. There was an old structure at the bottom of our yard made of wood with large wire mesh over it - presumably so something could grow over it. Whatever it used to be, it was just a big weed pit now so I set about knocking it down and reusing the wood. It was hard going as two of the legs were concreted into the ground and the old bolts had all rusted into the wood.
