The Girls

With rain in the forcast I was able to get the girls house and pen cleaned up Saturday and ready for a bit of winter weather. They all looked so happy before they were locked in for the night(-:


Good Night Sleep Tight

They are so beautiful! I didn't realize that you had hens. My grandmother use dto have a hen house at her house when I was a child. I remember going in there to collect egg. Down the road a bit someone had those fancy roosters so we had to keep an eye on the hens ;)

That is part of my dream to have a hen house...
It's fun to see yours!

Hi Vicky,
I really enjoy the girls. They are fun to watch and of course we love to get fresh eggs. They miss their boyfriend so hopefully soon I will find them a new one. Their last boyfriend was killed by a hawk. Last weekend we put netting up over their pen so the hawks can't get them anymore. We lost three hens and the rooster in the last month or so)-: I know they are hungry but they need to find another free meal.(-:

Hi Cyndee,
Chickens are fun(-: I hope you are able to get yours too!

It's probably been 30 (maybe even 40) years since I've been in a chicken coop (what we called their house when I was a kid). I still remember the sound of the soft noises they made as they were settling into sleep. It was a comforting sort of sound. :-)

Hi Renna,
They do make fun sounds when they are getting settled down(-: When I let them out in the morning everyone is so happy and ready to start the day. Some girls are already in the nest ready to lay an egg(-:
