At last!  The Chickens are in their permanent residence under the beech tree.

The door to the run looks a little wonky, but it is actually the ground that is running up hill.  The shed was old and abandoned and needed a little care and attention.  We painted it, put a new roof on, cut a hole in it, put a tiny door over the hole, installed nest boxes and even a perch made out of a beech branch.  They are not using the perch.  They are using the space.  They are stretching themselves and scratching about so much that they seem to have forgotten the bullying and fighting.
