Accidental hen enrichment

21 11 2017

I did some more work on the chicken house yesterday, since Winter is Coming. I lowered the heat lamp, stuck bubble wrap over the windows, and taped a perfectly-sized insulating polystyrene box lid onto their door which — although very clever and automatic — is thin and metal.

But by lunchtime today the hens had eaten great chunks out of this, thrilled by the little white beebles it spawned. Ooops – now hoping they don’t wake up dead (though they do seem pretty bullet-proof).
