Keeping the Ladies Happy

Well, it has been an age since we had poultry down here on our little plot, and the old fowlhouse has been begging for a makeover.
I have been slowly doing renovations to the chook palace, and it is nearing completion.
Today was superb weather for working outdoors, after the heat and humidity of the last couple of days.  Overcast, mild temperatures and a slight breeze - does it get any better than this!
So the chookie yard had its wire attached, and there are only a couple of pieces to finish off and the ladies can move in.
I have been seeking advice from all and sundry about poultry breeds, and have even joined the Australian Poultry Forum to see what is currently best practice in poultry culture.

Hopefully the large numbers of alektorologists who read this blog will chime in with advice. Maybe even the experts from Pony Paradise will share their knowledge and experience.
Once its finished - should happen over the weekend - I'll post some piccies.
But in the meantime - feast your eyes on today's sunset.  A modest affair by Tele Point standards but still awesome.

Sometimes the trees do get in the way.

A full review of Poultry Paradise will follow shortly .....................................................................


  1. Beautiful sunset photos Tom, look forward to seeing your photos of the Taj Mahal of Henhouses. We will know who to ask for advice when we get around to building out chookie pen down the track.
    Love your work big brother.

  2. Thank you little sister. Skies are dark and grey at the moment and have been for days. Poultry paradise is finished and is awaiting the arrival of its first tennants. Australorps, Leghorns and Isa Browns are ordered, but haven't yet arrived. Next week I hope. I'm waiting for the sun to come back so that I can take and post some happy pictures.
