Winter Quarters

Although the grass is still growing … at least it was until our first frost yesterday … the ground where the Moppets were housed most recently is still bare. We just don’t have enough grass to keep them happy all through the winter, so today I moved the fencing around to give them access to a wider area … not grass, but bare ground and shrubs.




They do have some grass for now … alongside the greenhouse in the background … but I’m sure it won’t last for long. They may be small, but they just love to eat grass and it will soon be gone.

Sorry, still no pictures of the hens … the light isn’t too good today (I’m waiting for it to rain) and they simply don’t keep still long enough for a decent, sharp photo!

    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.
