Still going strong …

We still have five Moppets, though some of them are now nearly 6 years old …


One of the Moppets has been broody for over a month, though another gave up after a few days …


Connie (Gold-laced Wyandotte) is also still going strong … must be five or six weeks now …


The climbing frame is in use as a bird feeder …


The Moppets’ first stop in the mornings is beneath the feeders, lots of fallen seed there makes for rich pickings …


The hens have always loved dandelions …



The garden has always looked lush at this time of year …


And finally, the apple tree is as magnificent as ever …

    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.
