What a Hen House?

We thought we did our “girls” a favour this weekend by buying them a brand new Hen House – well, it’s a dog house but we won’t tell them. It was not expensive and George, who builds these great pet houses, uses old pellets to build then, so they are made from 100% recycled material! George makes a living buy building these and he does a really fine job. He is a homeless man and this is a good initiative to support.

Well, getting back to the Hen House.

We put it up on “stilts” so they can either sit underneath for shade or sit in the hen house and make eggs! Lots of room, warm and cosy inside, I even put blankies in there for them.

Well, Buffy got the girls to one side ….. I heard them whispering and, next thing I knew, the gate was open!!

Buffy??……. Vanilla?…….. Skollie???? ……..

I have a feeling that they don’t like their new Hen House…….

A quick glimps of them escaping ………

Where did the rascals go?????

Ah, here they are! Pretending that they did not hear me!

Hiding won’t help, Buffy!

Well, looks like we need to make some improvements, but it is better than the old chair they used to fight over. I am sure that we will have peace in the home once they have had tried it out!

Will keep you posted!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Nice looking hen house. Yes, I do hope they like it. I’ve got chickens as well and I have found it you put their favorite food where you want them, they’ll want to go there.
Best wishes,
