Garden View
Hello and Welcome! I decided to start this blog for everyone out there who has an interest, or WANTS to be interested, in living a life that is a little more sustainable. I am still learning, and invite you to follow this blog to learn along with me. I will share what I have learned as we go, and hopefully you will pitch in and share what YOU are doing to live a little more off of what you can grow and DO from home. PLEASE BELIEVE ME when I say, if I can learn how to do this on a very small backyard plot in a city, then ANYONE can do this!!

Snow Perches

Do you have places where your flock can get up off the ground?  My handy-husband built the beautiful perch in this picture using some leftover wood posts from building the run and a large stick(with any pokey parts removed).  Before winter approached, I also took several spent garden pots and simply up-ended them in the run.  They love to hop on top of them to perch, especially when there is snow on the ground! 

We have been looking for a nice log stump to use as well, but have not had much luck here in suburbia (and we don't want to pay a fortune for one in a store)!  The rabbit LOVES to hop on top of his "box " (a large wooden shipping crate-not pictured) and lounge as well.  Rabbits love to have a place to rest that is up off the ground a bit and gives them a "lookout" spot.  What have you used for 'snow perches?'
