Trellises for the Peafowl Coop

There are many end-of-summer projects underway at the farm.

As you know, I recently constructed a new coop for my peafowl. My three peahens and two peacocks are doing exceptionally well - and so are their peachicks, which I hatched in a special incubator in my kitchen a couple months ago.

Last week, we installed several antique trellises to the back of the new coop - they make such a lovely addition to the finished structure. Trellises allow gardens to expand vertically, and can provide support for many favorite classic climbers. Here are some photos.
