Our Happy Hens




The first picture is a drawing made by Wanda of our hens! Isn't it great? Thank you, Wanda, I feel honored!
Last weekend my husband moved the chicken coop to the top of our hill across from the house. After all, it is a 'moveable chicken coop'. The chickens are very happy there! They spent the winter behind the garage, but it was too shady there.
Das erste Bild wurde von Wanda gemalt u zeigt unsere Huehner! Ist es nicht gut geworden? Vielen Dank, Wanda, wir fuehlen uns geehrt!
Am letzten Wochenende hat mein Mann die Huehner mal wieder umgezogen u zwar auf den Huegel gegenueber vom Haus. Immerhin ist es ja ein bewegbares Huehnerhaus! Den Huehnern gefaellt es dort sehr gut, nachdem sie den Winter hinter der Garage verbracht haben, aber da war es nun zu schattig u auch matschig.

Wanda did an awesome job! Nice pictures of the chickens, too! :)

Wanda said...

Wow, up on the hill has a lot more grass ~~ in the picture I used, it looked more like gravel.

Thanks for posting it Gudl, that was sweet of you.

Wanda did a very nice job with those chickens.

I wouldn't mind having some chickens, but I think my husband is a bit more into collecting logs and lumber than animals.

You are so lucky to have chickens and a coupe that can be moved. I like the watercolor drawing that Wanda made too.

We got some free range eggs from the lady who works at the grain elevator and the yokes are almost dark orange color. Seems to be more healthy than those you buy at the store.

Beautiful painting. And congrats to the hens on their new living arangements/location.

That's a really nice set-up.

Nice they get to move around a bit - I bet they really enjoy the change. Wow! What a treat Wanda made a painting for you. :)
