The new chicken house

                                                      June 26, 2012

      It’s official, the hens have moved. They are waking up to their new home. I am sure there is a lot of clucking going on, as they discuss their new coop.

      The location couldn’t be better. The gravel pad looks too big right now, but will look just right once we back-fill with topsoil. I even reused an old piece of cement for an entrance stoop. The girls are living in grand style now..even the window box looks cute 😮

      I don’t know if the hens will produce enough eggs to make this move worth it, but I sure do like the look and function of the new building. The hens will be shut in here for a week or so and then will begin to free-range in the big pasture.

      I guess I should say that the hens will be “cooped up” not shut up. All of us guys know you can’t shut up a bunch of hens … anymore than you can keep a proud rooster from strutting! It is just the way of things and living in harmony makes ….. home sweet home!
