The expanded chicken pen

Today was a the day for a massive accomplishment: we finally expanded the chicken pen. It's more than doubled their space (and is that much less for me to mow).

Here is the border of the old pen. It's well fertilized, but picked clean.
Room to roam. I'd love to have free range chickens, but living in town with so many dogs it just wouldn't be possible. The fence is composed of cattle panels to keep the dogs out and chicken wire to keep the hens in.
Frodo approves; although I did have to bribe them to explore the new space with grapes.

What wonderful eggs you are going to get with all that lush greenery for them to peck at.
