A sunny afternoon.

Garden Coop in the sun.

It’s spring break here, and we’ve only had one afternoon of sun.  We decided the chickens should get a chance to play outside and a few of them took us up on it.  In fact, some of the smaller chicks escaped and we had to chase them to put them back inside.  The kids thought this was a hoot, naturally.

Layer Gaga thinking about coming outside.

Ethan, our ten-and-three-quarters old, helped on the coop as he desired and is very proud of our hard work.

Carter, our eight year-old, making sure predators can't get in the coop. He's very attached to the chickens and worries about their safety.

Bodhi, our two-and-a-half-year-old, loves the chickens and wants to check on them as often as possible.

  2. Hi – had to come over for a visit. Love your henhouse. Hens are great fun, excpet when they get into the veg patch. We don’t have predators on the island so they are rarely shut in. x

    • Jacqui, Thanks for stopping by! Also, thank you for the hen-house love. I do so wish that my girls could roam free, but our last batch that we free ranged couldn’t outlive their foes. Between the coyotes, raccoons and bald eagles.. well I guess they don’t stand a chance.
