Hen House

We spent the weekend working on the hen house. Once again we thought we would be finished by Sunday, but nope. Saturday morning it rained heavily, so we lost half a day there.

We are nearly done, though. All the hen house pieces have been cut  and stained. They just need to be installed.


While I waited for the stain to dry I planted some herbs for the chickens in planters.


The ladies were super excited by the greenery. I know they LOVE cilantro, so I look forward to give them some of these herbs to chew on. I planted spearmint to help keep rodents away; oregano for it’s antibiotic benefits; rosemary for their nesting boxes; and thyme for its immune boosting properties.
