Tough Cluck

Hen houses are a bit like people houses: the most attractive are not always the most practical. My friend Fran has sixteen rescue chickens and they live in a couple of wooden sheds. They prefer to lay their eggs in a large cardboard box and they dine out of old saucepans, tucked underneath one of these sheds. They would feel as unappreciative of a freshly-painted chalet as she would.


  1. Where is that fowl house pictured at top?

  2. It's in the same farmyard as the cardboard box, but it's for sale.

  3. I think I would lay golden eggs if I lived in that periwinkle blue chalet.
