Taking shelter

hens perched in shelter Jan 13

I couldn't resist taking this photo today. Half my hens were perched in the shelter we built them last year to give them somewhere to stay dry during the constant rain. No rain today of course though it had snowed on Monday. The ground is frozen hard so the hens weren't going to have much luck free-ranging for bugs and grubs. At least on the perch they are off the cold ground.

So, a tip to any budding henkeepers: make sure your birds have shelter in rain and cold alike.
