I have wanted chickens since we got married. I kept asking for portable chicken coop that we could pull around our field. Josh decided to make a coop for me underneath our barn lean to. A dandy idea indeed. We bought 5 hens on Saturday and put them in their new home. We were hoping to let them roam free through the day but Duke, our dog, and Louise, Mom's dog, seem a little too interested in the chickens. Not sure how we are going to solve that problem.
Meet the girls, Henny, Penny, Hilda, Ethel, and Jane. I just made those names up. ha.
They wouldn't cooperate for a group photo.
Their cozy home with an automatic door to the left of the big door.

Hilda was a free range chicken before she came to stay with us.
She really enjoys any of the outdoors she can see.
