The first couple of weeks has felt a lot like product management of software. I'm in constant iteration on everything from the coop to the feeding and it's a ton of fun. I've done a lot of things wrong, but like software, it's easy to fix and try new things.
My favorite example is the latch on the inside of the coop. I never would have thought about that ahead of time, but when I need to get something done inside the coop and don't want to chase the chickens back in when I'm done, I simply lock everyone in!
