As I expected, the girls were a little leery of the nest boxes at first.
But, without other options, what’s a girl to do?
Sara Lynn and I have been on egg patrol for the past few days.
Our hen house is separated into two spaces. One space is for the girls and the other space is for their supplies.
We have this handy-dandy door for making our egg checks. It’s not fancy, but it works. And our shoes stay clean.
And Mama stays happy.
There’s also a full-sized door for those times when we need to get in there and clean things out.
Both spaces in the hen house have a skylight... I think I could live here. Really, I do.
A nice popcorn tree provides shade during the heat of the day. In a few weeks, that tree will be gorgeous all aflame with the brilliant colors of autumn. Our entire property is studded with these trees… I can hardly wait! This is my absolute favorite time of year.
Did I mention that the girls figured things out?
I think I’ll do some baking today.
