Chicken pasture gate repair

fixing an old chicken pasture gate with Lccy in background

This chicken pasture gate got damaged last year because it couldn't get out of the way from the golf cart backing up at full speed.

The latest batch of chickens from the incubator are starting to get big enough to threaten our strawberry crop, which is what motivated today's gate repair.

We plan to relocate them into this pasture tomorrow if we can figure out an easy way to move the outdoor brooder without shaking the chickens too much.
