Our chickens spent all summer behind the scenes as their home was upgraded. Now that summer is ending, they are back in the Farmyard– to their new and improved home! Our summer project was to build our Farmyard chickens a new coop. Much planning, purchasing, strategizing, scheduling, cutting, lifting, hammering, screwing, digging, painting, and repeating, occurred throughout the summer.
While many people were involved, Scott “Skinny” Eney from our Exhibits Team, made it his mission to ensure that the work would get done, and get done right. From design, to demolition, and final touches, Skinny’s work can be seen everywhere.
A final few days of getting the coop ready for the chickens, was followed by a staff party to welcome the chickens back to the Farmyard, and then bringing the chickens- and guests- back. We look forward to seeing you all back in the Farmyard.
