Creative Hen House, Costco Cedar Dog House

This is the new summer hen house I set up this week for the girls. I’m hoping it will give them an alternative place to set on eggs when the temperatures soar.

It would be great if the hens would be broody when it’s not 115 degrees, but that probably won’t happen. So this might be a cooler area, there’s a large shade tree and I have two more trees ready to plant.

I bought this red cedar dog house at Costco for only $89.00. It’s made really well, has a sturdy floor, two nest boxes fit perfectly in the rear, and there’s ample space for food and water.  It took about 20 minutes to put together, what a bargain!
