Time were hard for the ladies and reluctantly they had to pack their bags and leave their stately home in the country and move to the confines of a small and cramped flat. Oh how the mighty had fallen.
Seriously though, like everyone else, I've had to move my chickens indoors away from wild birds and hopefully the threat of avian flu.
The pullets seem to be coping pretty well so far in their cramped conditions but its far from being ideal. They've gone from living in a large grass run to a small breeze block pig sty. Apologies for the rain drop on my camera lens in the picture of the cockerel, its persisted it down here all day.

Not ideal, but they have light and space. Are they entertained by dangling cabbages and things like that?
