Although it was Father's Day here, His Lordship & I spent the afternoon in the backyard-mowing, trimming, moving strawberry beds and cleaning out the chicken coop.
I don't think that I've ever shared the interior of our hen's home-they spend the day outside free ranging in the orchard- with access to the coop via a ramp. The layer pellets, water & nesting areas are inside.
|Wilma wondering why I'm standing there with the door open!|
|There is one nesting box built as part of the shed-shown here being entered by a headless chicken!|
|Looking back towards the door & ramp-we have used an old plastic dog kennel as a nesting box..the lid lifts up for easy access to the eggs.|
|The Committee of Management waiting for me to vacate!|
|The old manure laden straw is placed on one of the fallow garden beds.|
