I like the lack of poo but I miss them meandering the yard and I know Henry misses chasing them. I let them out to eat grass for a few hours in the evening, but it’s not quiet the same. I’ll keep this set up through the winter too though because it is working well.
I’m getting 6-8 eggs a day. Chickens lay according to the hours of daylight they get, so I’m not sure how things will change as they days get shorter, but I need to read up on what they need for the winter.
There you have it, a lovely little update on the hens at my house.
Thanks for letting me gab about the ladies! Are you convinced you need your own yet?
