The September Heights – Day 25 – Sleep

From the roost, chirping:

Where’s the ramp? The chickens are

up before I am.

Looking through the egg door to the nest box (where the shredded paper is) and the roost (the pole that runs down the middle). The ramp is to the right, raised and lowered by the wire right down the middle of the picture.

The chicken coop with ramp lowered. Victoria is the brown chicken and Margaret and Anne are the black ones.

    • It is funny how each one really has a personality. Margaret is a spaz! Anne is very calm (unfortunately she might be the lowest in the pecking order). Victoria is a little disdainful of everyone–unless you have oatmeal for her. 🙂


  1. Beautiful coop/run!! Are you in a 4 season climate or more temperate. My chickens don’t like oatmeal unless it is Gerber’s baby oatmeal with mashed Gerber’s meat sticks!! What else do you feed yours? I need more ideas!!


  2. A very clever coop. We used to have a long cord that ran under the roof of the coop, across a passage and out of the wire gate to the pen, so that we could pull up the shutter which stopped them going into the run at night. Two nestboxes were cunningly cut through into the adjacent feed shed, so that we could lift a hinged flap to get the eggs. And all without getting our feet muddy. I miss keeping chickens, even though they must be about the stupidest of God’s creatures.
