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.

    March 2017 ... All change in the hen garden as the fruit cage run is retired in favour of an electric fence, the veg beds are relocated to put the hens on fresh ground, and the new girls arrive, Dorcas, Delilah and Deanna.

    January 2017 ... Bird flu outbreak and all domestic foul are quarantined until the end of February.
