IMG_5411Slabs alongside the one stretch of netting that had no protection … the other sides of the run have stones along them. This stops a fox digging underneath the netting. The slabs are all very uneven, but will do!

IMG_5418I have put some breeze blocks across the gate to stop the woodchip being kicked on to the grass I hope will grow in the Hen Garden one day …

But they also support a wire panel I’m using to reinforce the netting of the gate – again, with foxes in mind.

IMG_5414We asked a local tree surgeon for woodchip – he brought rather more than we need, direct from the job, so it’s a bit of everything. I’ll soon find a home for it … along the path to the Hen Run and around some shrubs.

IMG_5412Even though we’ve moved part of the load, I still can’t get the car onto the drive …

So we’re nearly ready. I still need DH to help me rearrange the garage, hopefully before we get in the feed. But he’s away for a few days …

    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.

    July 2018 … Four new girls arrive, two LS bantams and two Mille Fleur Pekins.

    June 2018 … We had an extended heatwave, with daily temperatures in the 30s.
