We have a very special work day this Saturday.  It is called…PROJECT HENWAY. 
Project Henway:  a chicken coop expansion that will hopefully give our dear hens (26 total!) additional raccoon-proof activity space while keeping them from destroying our plant beds.  Don’t fret… they will still be let “free to roam” while supervised. 
It’s ok if you can’t stay for all of it or need to arrive late.  Any help at any time is appreciated!  We hope to see you there!
Supplies we’ll need for Project Henway:
Galvanized single strand wire: 60′ – 80′
Smaller gauge wire for weaving chicken wire together: 100′
48″ Chicken wire: 90 lf or 36″ chicken wire: 124′
Eye bolts: 10
Staples for a staple gun
3″ Screws: 20
1 1/2″ Screws: one box
180 degree hinges: 2
hasp and combo lock
Tools that would be very handy for Saturday’s use:
flat bars
tape measures
post hole digger
measuring tape
work gloves & safety
staple gun
battery operated screw gun
skill saw
extension cord
wire cutter
Please let us know if you can help and also if you’re able to bring any tools or supplies.    Please RSVP to
