We will be going to farm stores this weekend to try and recruit some construction savvy guys (or gals) to help fix up the current chicken pen (more) and rebuild the 2nd one from the sections we have left from the last pen. Hoping to find people that can work either this weekend (Sunday) and/or next Sat/Sun. The rescue can't afford to pay much, so $10 cash per hour is all we can offer.
Not going to be a precise professional job, since it's just a small farm. But we need it to be done well enough to prevent predators from getting in. Using hardware cloth 12" underground, and on all the sides, and poultry wire on top. Then we will install the roof from 2x4's slant mounted to the barn, then screw in the corrugated roofing on the 2x4's. We can probably handle the gutter installation ourselves.
The worker guy who accompanied me to Lowe's to buy $250 worth of electrical supplies to run the electric from the house to the barn never showed up to do it. So now it's too late to take all that stuff back, and I have to HOPE I have the right supplies for whoever ends up doing the job. I was warned that I need to use someone who is licensed, or I risk a bad job which could result in a fire.
