The contraption they're using to stretch the fencing seems a little complicated. I'm trying my best to stay out of it and let the men folk handle it.
I know some of you out there will take one look at it and say "Duh, you guys are leaving a hole at the bottom." We know. We even planned it that way.
See, there's another round of fencing with tighter mesh going on the bottom and getting buried in the ground to keep varmints out and chicks in. There's even gonna be a mesh on top that will keep the hawks that circle this place daily from swooping down and swiping a chicken nugget. The only other thing we could possibly do to protect them is to arm the chickens with a shotgun. But there's that whole opposable thumb issue.
