Hens are always eating …





I replaced the nest boxes in the Moppet House today … at first, I thought I’d done the wrong thing ….


Sorry it’s not a good photo … I only had my phone on me and it doesn’t zoom well … but four of the bantams immediately started to investigate, hopping in and out of the nest boxes and squabbling over who went where. Fortunately, they soon tired of the fun and carried on eating …

    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.
