While the sunny weather continues …

… I went out and washed down the Eglu. But the wind was brisk so I didn’t do much more! We’ve not been completely happy with the Eglu Go … the door sometimes comes apart and the base panels don’t stay in place. And when cleaning, I can’t get to the run side of the coop wall to wash it down. If I tip the whole thing up on its side, I’m concerned I may bend the skirt of the run.

But it’s done as far as it’s going to be done. And still the weather holds …

I made enquiries about woodchip this morning, and my usual supplier (the city council) has none available. So I’ve contacted a local tree surgeon who advertises woodchip and logs for sale (less expensive than from the council, too) so we’ll see … we’ve still no idea of a time scale for the arrival of our new girls, but at the earliest I suppose they could arrive at the weekend?

I’ll certainly let you know!

    Our original hen keeping adventure came to an end in January 2013, when a fox took our entire brood of hens. But don’t let that put you off … you can find the story at The Hen House Archive where there are still lots of stories, photos, and information about keeping hens I hope you'll find useful.
