Your Chickens - - Charlotte's Chickens -


The last few weeks have been pretty ter­ri­ble weather wise and not pleas­ant for our hens. The wind and rain is not a great com­bi­na­tion. I find my hens’ feed gets wet as, although it is in cov­ered con­tain­ers, the rain ar­rives hor­i­zon­tally and soaks the feed. I try and put some of the con­tain­ers un­der cover. If you can, try and give your hens some­where cov­ered to shel­ter; they will re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate it.


False eggs are great for en­cour­ag­ing hens to lay in the nest you want them to lay in but try to go for china or ce­ramic eggs that hens can­not peck through. See this rub­ber egg which has been eaten into – can’t have been good for the cul­prit hen!
