Man oh man what a day. We got the storage building and deck moved, got the u-haul loaded, and transported a bunch of cement blocks that were used for the deck to the farm.

The chickens are doing well. They have adjusted to drinking creek water, and they are enjoying their new yard. Part of the yard is shaded by oak trees while the other section gets a lot of sunlight. This allows the chickens to get as much shade, or as much sunlight as they want.

The chickens went from 9 square feet each in their old run to 185 square feet in their new yard. I think the extra room has decreased the chickens stress levels, which has resulted in less bad behavior.

The rabbits are doing well in their new location. Just as the chickens have done the rabbits have adjusted to drinking creek water.

After the house is put in the next phase will be to put down the sewer system and water well.

Tomorrow (July 28, 2013) will be another day of moving stuff.
