The hens are having a dust bath in the barn!
I caught them unexpectantly as I was passing…
This is one of the best aspects of keeping hens…getting to see what they’re really like…and liking them even more for it!
Keeping hens is very little work if everything is done well from the start. That means a solid hen-house and enclosure for when they cannot roam in the gardens and this can be, for example, when friends with dogs visit…I once had a beautiful cockerel savaged by a friend’s dog…we fell out afterwards!
So here are three very happy girls…enjoy!
They do look happy ! Do you eat their eggs?
Indeed I do…for it is their gift to me and I appreciate that very much…they are delicious!
So cool! Mine are all over the place at the mo, no neighbours dogs out here! they don’t get locked up again until the spring, and oh they love the barn and keep all the straw under the cows all; fluffy and turned over. they are my housekeepers! well barnkeepers actually! c
That’s a brilliant way of describing hens…as housekeepers/barnkeepers…for they really do earn their keep and give so much! I love them!
