Bank Holiday Chicken World Improvements


Chicken World is looking pretty picture perfect at the moment, and when I nip out and take another photo later on today will be looking even neater, because the stones for the pathway have just arrived.

The house has been cleaned out, sprayed and Diatom'd to make sure there are no bugs to annoy the chickens, and it has been filled with fresh bedding ready for their return, with an extra thick layer in the nesting boxes for their egg laying comfort.  The roof was re-creosoted a couple of weeks ago to keep out the rain and preserve the wood, and underneath the house the dust bathing area has been filled with freshly sifted soil ready for them to use to keep their feathers clean.

It's a shame we have to put the chickens back in there, they'll just make it look .... well like Chicken World again  ;-)

  5. What have you done with them during the remodel? Looks good, but I'm sure it won't last.

    1. They've been over on the hillside in their other house for the last few months to rest the grass in original Chicken World.

  9. Very cute and pleasing to the eye. We have to make a space for our eventual chickens so I hope it turns out as attractive!

  10. I hope you're charging a decent rent for that palace, Sue. Surely an egg a day from each of your girls. It looks great. What's that tree you've planted next to the coop?

    1. Oh yes at least an egg every day off the new girls, and one every other day off our older ladies if they want to live in such luxury ;-)

      The tree is a little Cherry tree, it was there when we bought this property three years ago and is just coming into it's own now. We've never eaten any of the cherries it produces as the chickens and wildlife usually beat us to it, but we do share the plum tree, which is just out of shot with them.
