Winter Quarters

This afternoon hubby and I moved the chickens to their Winter quarters, which means off the grass and down onto the patio, nearer the house.  This means the chickens won't be in such a mud bath, and we won't have so far to go in inclement weather in order to see to them.  We found out last year that putting straw down helped to keep the mud and muck under control as well as making it easier to clean them out.

  1. I think a harsh winter really tests you as a chicken keeper! Good idea to move them closer to the house, wish I could do that but our aviaries are far too big to move. Mind you, the chickens are snug as bugs in them :)

    Hope your well x


I look forward to reading your comments, it's always good to hear encouraging words or relevant hints and tips.
