New mobile unit for BlineGai

BlineGai the Narragansett rare heritage turkey
taking a nap
The new mobile unit in the garden is made from two 4' high cattle panels, a simple PVC door (secured in the open daytime position here), with a tarp for shade and rain protection that we just finished here at Valhalla. At 6' wide, 8' long and
about 6' high It's large enough to accommodate numerous types animals in an emergency, perhaps a goat doe with a new kid, young ducklings or chicks who have outgrown their first brooders, injured chickens or ducks, or what have you. BlineGai now successfully spends her days once again with the rest of the turkey flock, although she still needs added protection at night... therefore she's been enjoying the new unit while Sidney the wounded rooster is recovering in her former apartment.

The Valhalla Project needs your help and support
Just getting a project like Valhalla up and running has required a significant investment in time, money, and labor. With roughly $500,000 already invested over the last two years into the Valhalla Project for property acquisition, feeding and housing Soldier participants, infrastructure and facility improvements, animal purchases and feed, tools and building supplies, forest and pasture management expenses, and much much more, resources are running thin. We need YOUR help to keep Valhalla functioning efficiently - while at the same time expanding vitally important programs to assist post-9/11 combat Soldiers and war zone civilian workers to transition back into the civilian world. 

The Valhalla Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity recognized by the IRS.
Nobody, including cadre or board members, draws a paycheck here, nor will they ever: we simply give everything we have to make Valhalla possible. 100% of your donation via Paypal will go directly to program expenses, period. If you'd prefer to instead directly donate four new tractor tire, a truckload of straw bales, a pallet of dimension lumber, or even a few dozen 10' sheets of forest green tin roofing, that would be absolutely wonderful - yet perhaps polking the "Donate" button above to contribute $10, $20, 
$50 or even more might be a little easier and more practical!
