Chicken run

Right now, I would love to have my feet up and a cuppa in one hand, whilst watching the funny animated film of that name!

But it is our chickens which have been liberated this afternoon from this kind of establishment:

The recent downpours have made their runs very muddy so the FH has let them out to pillage in the vegetable garden, and they are loving it!

They are finding all sorts of tasty morsels to eat, having a jolly good scratch around, and sunbathing!

The FH was instructed to make sure that they couldn't poop all over the patio, and get under the porch area near the back door, so he has constructed, in a Heath-Robinson manner, a little fence to keep them out.  They are happy, I am happy!

I hope your chickens are enjoying the better weather. And hopefully you will have a lot less bugs on your garden! WS xxx

What a lovely new home for your hens.

I love menu planning, and it saves money in the long run.

Sorry if the picture is misleading - I just meant that the "chicken run" I was referring to was the hen house rather than the film.

I am sure that they would love this house but they have a huge bespoke shed which the FH built a few years ago and they will have to put up with that!!
