Broody hen Number Two has left the barn and her eggs behind for home. She really has had enough ! Scratching away with the others and no sign of broodiness anymore.
Broody hen Number One who came home a few days ago is still sitting on the nest, but in the coop, trying to hatch straw.
That leaves us with broody hen Number Three. She is still in the barn. But soon we will need that enclosure for 15 broilers, so madam will have to move again.
On Wednesday, I surfed the internet to see what's available in hen houses. We need something for broody blummin' hens and hopefully a chick or two.
Found something and ordered it. Today it was delivered, in flat pack.
Fragile, indeed. I don't think it would stand up to one winter storm. But...we can easily bring it into the barn once everything returns back to normal in the hen household.
We started assembling the Wendy house straight away. It looks like a doll's house next to the other one.
Saturday evening, Number Three will have a new home near her other family. Fingers crossed it'll stand up to scrutiny.
Flappy is thinking of moving in.
