WELCOME TO THE HEN GARDEN

IMG_6644This is the continuing story of our adventures keeping hens in our urban back garden.

Hens come and go, but our current hens are two Pekin Bantams, who are quite elderly and are together known as The Moppets (we once had seven, but as we could never tell them apart we never bothered with individual names!); Connie (Gold-laced Wyandotte) and Carey (Buff Sussex) who came to us at POL in March, 2014; and the new arrivals, Deanna (Blue Maran), Dorcas (Cou-cou Maran) and Delilah (Light Sussex) who arrived in March 2017.

Keeping hens is always an adventure … I hope you enjoy following our story  🙂

  1. Your hens are lovely! We don’t have many hens left because a fox comes by every so often and takes a hen. We let the hens roam free on the three acres in the woods so we really can’t expect to not have some loss. We need a new batch of chicks. Maybe next year?

    • Hi Calley … I read your blog and it’s lovely to see the hens out and free ranging in such surroundings 🙂

    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.
