Preparing for new flock

So this weekend we've been preparing for our new flock. This comprised tackling the jungle that had grown in the chicken run since the demise of our last lot. There was an incredible variety of things growing in there, including tomatoes, melon, mint, corn, potatoes, nettles, unidentifiable weeds and a whole host of bugs and creepy-crawlies - an entire ecosystem in fact. Having cut this back and dug it up, we then set about the coop itself with some preserver/coating.

Here's a 'before' picture:

All we need now is some chickens!
