Last year - for our anniversary - Euan and I bought ourselves a chicken house. A chicken house which would look attractive and Country Livingish rather than the slightly wobbly "artistic" and often a bit drafty kind of houses our poultry was used to.
We decided to buy the house from Ben Grist at Oakdene coops and as you can see it is a beauty
We were so pleased with it that I told Ben and his Auntie Diana that I would blog about it . . . but with one thing and another, builders, mud, recalcitrant chickens and so on there never seemed to be a nice enough photo.
Last week we moved it up to the garden so that we could introduce Mummy Sussex and her brood into it .
As you can see she is a discerning matriarch - but she was impressed.
