While we have plans to build them a nice matching coop and enclosure along with the garage project, we felt a need to come up with a temporary solution in the mean time. So we wrapped that metal gazebo frame in the backyard with chicken wire. We jury-rigged a door with a piece of bamboo and bungee cords. We'll come up with something better if it doesn't work well enough.

Then this afternoon Jeff finished up the front yard vegetable garden. He shows some process photos here. He put down the straw as mulch so it would hold in the moisture and it should also break down and add organic matter to the soil.
