Betsy (near the food) is always hungry. Ellie (bottom left) she’s the homemaker, loves dust baths and cuddles. …center shot is Debbie my sassy girl, she always has that ‘vogue’ look.

Chicken coops come in all shapes and designs, for now, we needed something that would work with our garden. George designed the chicken coop to be mobile, that way we can rotate it around and the ladies can prep the ground for us.

There was a lot of hush hush as the Ladies of Lake Helen made their grand entrance towards the atrium.

George placed the feeders close to the door for easy access and also added a wire reinforcement to the rope.
