Almost moving day for the chickens

Jason worked hard all weekend, and its almost finished! The little chicken door and ramp will be to the left of the big door, and we just need to get some litter and a roost inside. I’m eager to paint, but that will have to wait until is warms up to at least 50 degrees.
Now I’m stumped as to what color to paint it. I was going to do a nice barn red with white trim, but now I’m not so sure.
All the neighbors are aware of our flock now. The other day I noticed only the two buff chickens were outside, and all three of my reds were missing, completely gone from the backyard. Jason finally spotted them over the back fence, roaming around the neighbor’s yard. We figured they squeezed through a small hole under the fence.
I was in panic mode until we got them back. The hole is blocked up now, and I am still letting them free range around the yard. I just don’t have the heart to keep them penned in all day.
