This spring the Farmer prepared this cozy spot for the chickens.

This chicken house will fit right in the opening.

 

I didn’t get out early
enough to see the dismantling
of the extra wing attached to the hen house.

With the help of the tractor,
the house was lifted up and onto the white trailer.
The trailer was pulled by the lawn mower
to the new chicken pen area.

I missed that part
because littlest A. Crain and I did a donut run.

  1. Wish I knew about the donut run! Lol

    • you would focus in on that part of the story!

  2. You are lucky to see chickens. I love chickens. We call them chooks.
    I would like some one day. Perhaps little bantams for a small space.
    Please post more pics of your chooks when they are settled. So good for kids too.:-D

    • My first love is the bantams, somehow we ended up with larger ‘chooks’ for the eggs.
