Over the winter the old gate to the chicken yard suffered irreparable damage. I've been meaning to build another one since the weather got warm enough for the girls to go outside. Today I finally did. I can barely lift this one, so let the wind blow to its heart's content. It's also hinged much better than the old one and opens smoothly. I buried the edges of the chicken wire behind the wood, too, so that I wouldn't constantly be getting caught on it. With practice everything gets better, including my carpentry skills.
