A New Chicken House

My parents came up last week from Blenheim to stay a few days and on the back of their little truck, Dad brought a new chicken house he had built. We finally got it in place today after I painted it on the weekend.
It's  a Jubilee House - painted in royal colours of red, white and blue:
Front door-way facing north to get maximum warmth in winter
4 internal nesting boxes - we'll see if the bottom ones get used!
Self-feeders - especially useful if I'm working late or going to be away for a short time
The flock were very suspicious tonight, even though I feed them outside the new house - I guess it'll only take one to use it on a cold night.
Also made up 4kgs of feijoas into jam this morning - mmm! delicious!

Yes, let's hope it doesn't take too long for them to use it!
