new flock moving day!

Today I decided it was finally time to move our new flock of hens to the main coop, as they will be hopefully laying eggs by January. I spent most of the afternoon sweeping out the coop from top to bottom, and cleaning up before Winter really sets in. I put down some nice new shavings, heated water font, and added a new nest box for them. This is our first mixed flock of 24 laying hens, and it was nice to raise them from day-old. They are a very friendly bunch and we can’t wait for the new eggs to arrive!
