Hi guys! Long time no update (sorry).
You might notice a little addition to the coop - a huge cat-shaped white Pet Cave! We thought it would add a bit of variety to the coop and the hens would enjoy dust-bathing in it - at the moment it's full of sand and DE!
We saw it in a pet-shop in Ilkley and it was a decent price so decided, what the hell! I had to take off half the coop's side to get it in - it's bloody massive!
Of course the hens are terrified of it - although I have seen Hedwig take a few steps into it (for the bits of food I'd scattered in there) - for the smallest hen she seems to be the bravest!
I hope they get used to it soon.
