House beautiful it's not
But we are growing chicks and greens! Here's a shot of the winter nesting area that Chris made for the hens and our makeshift cold frame where we are growing lettuce, spinach, and broccoli. One of our hens has gone broody in the nest so we surrounded her with chicken wire to discourage predators and other chickens and stuck 9 eggs under her. Yeah, it's not pretty but it's a chicken salad in the making!
