Hens in hen house

On cold and extremely windy days like this, I’m happy that we took the extra time to move our hens to the greenhouse couple months back. The girls absolutely do not want to go outside today. They have plenty of dry warm space to hang out inside while still enjoying the sunlight. And they have vegetables and squashes brought in to them! Talking about spoiled hens!!! I built the structure on the right from sunflower stalks for them. They fight over it every night, and the losers get to sleep on the official roost.

And no, we are not getting many eggs from them this time of year. We are ok with them focusing their energy on keeping themselves warm and healthy. And we are focusing more on keeping them warm and healthy. The time will come when they return the favor!
