My Guineas Got Out So I built a Mobile Coop (in a Day)

  • Published: 17 September 2019
  • My Guinea Clowns escaped (my fault) so I’m playing Defense. I’m having to put ALL other plans on hold to save these Guineas from impending death by Owl. Hopefully I can build a “TurkeyShaw” TODAY to protect them from aerial attack then put up an electric fence to protect them from land attacks. For once these Guineas have got to coop-orate.

    It won’t be long before your oldest will be the one you turn to for a build. He is so mature and so patient, and attentive.

          On the chick-shaw: Drill a hole through the axel outside the nut and use a castellated nut and cotter pin. It will stop the nut from backing off. That all-threat should be pretty soft.

                          YES! General rule of thumb I learned from Salatin... Don't put in a permanent fence until you've had the temporary one in the same spot for three years.

                        You and the boys have such excellent work/play relationship...especially your farm manager in the making..Jonah. He is astounding and I wonder if his brilliant invention is one for a patent?

                          Maybe a lock nut might help with your axle setup. They tend to not move once you set them in place. Not sure just an idea to try.

                                            It's so cool to see Rebekah getting more involved with the outdoor chores. Also, I've noticed that Josiah and even little Gideon are getting more involved, which is great. Jonah continues to be the farm genius doesn't he? He's going to be a GREAT farmer by the time he's 18!
