Our hens sleep on a bedding of wood shavings.
Each morning I scatter a good layer of fresh wood shavings onto their shelf.
The nights draw in so early now but they take up in various sleeping groupings each night.
We always see Eva and may at the far end - always Ernest and mabel nearest the door.
Olwyn and Bev seem to flit between one end and the other.
Each morning however as the hens leave their henhouse
a scattering of wood shavings is always evident.
We have tried straw before, but wood shavings definitely seem to be the cleanest and easier to manage choice. Our neighbour is a keen woodworker, only working with environmentally sound timber - so he supplies us with shavings - we supply him with eggs.
Good rarrangement I would say!
Except the gals are having a rest from laying eggs at the moment - but watch this space!
