2nd batch. We had to add bird netting for hawks.
We wanted to be able to have a way to track our eggs. Both of us have Androids and don’t really see something on the Play Store that would really work for us. I talked with a friend of mine about what I wanted and he helped me develop a Google Sheet that does exactly what we want. This sheet keeps track of totals of brown/green eggs with totals and monthly averages. I set this document for view so you should be able to make a copy and modify it if you wish.
The sheet can be found HERE

Our chickens are free range, however they do get locked up behind a closed run and an automatic door nightly and let out very early in the morning. When we go to let them out they are all patiently waiting by the man door. When they go in/out they have to hop to the bottom of the door and back down, its about a 10″ Rise. We never liked the hard jump they did getting out, it looked very jarring. Our rooster is the worse, probably because of the additional weight? Here is an image of what they had to go over.
We decided to put into a small door closer to the ground just for the chickens. We found THIS one on Pinterest, but it looked like the link was broke, so we decided just to make something like it.
Below are the images of what we added and its open/closed state.
Welcome to our blog. We were frequently getting asked to post some of our pictures online, so we created this page as we do not do Facebook/twitter or any other social networking. We added a couple of our projects under livestock, pages below:
