Chick update

For the past week or so when I’ve when out to check on the chicks anywhere between 1 and 5 of them would be running around the dog pen that is their home trying to find a way back in.  I couldn’t figure out how they were escaping.  around most of the dog pen I have chicken wire 3″ high to keep them from escaping and the last segment is a green plastic with holes in it as you can see below.  Today I see 7 chicks roosting on top of this plastic, which means they are easily able to get out through the chain link fence.  Time to do some more modifications.
