In one of the previous posts I wrote about the building of the chicken coop. You can read about it here .
As soon as our volunteers Silvio and Franzi had finished the fence and gate, we went to the Wednesday market in Kenmare and got us 5 point of lay hens. This was in the spring of 2014.
Yes, we use cat carriers for cats and chickens.
What's all this then ?
I took them a while before they ventured outside.
And when they did, they preferred to be under their coop.
After a week or so, they gave us their first 2 eggs.
I enjoy having hens around. The scratching in the soil, the lovely homely sounds they make, the eggs they provide.. Ah..Bliss...
This is not the last of my chicken posts. Be sure to visit again to see what else they've been up to.
