Amber’s Hen House:

Hen House

My hen house is always full of feathered critters with lots of personality. Currently a few laying hens make their home there. Come spring it is a hustle and bustle of activity as the chicks arrive. I raise turkeys each year as well who get their names from areas near my hometown in Ontario. From homing pigeons, pheasants & ducks to peacocks, this coop has seen it all. Visit my Instagram page (Amber_Marshall_Farm) to see current photos of the birds on the farm.
