We have moved all the chickens to the smallholding and their new palatial surroundings. They seemed to like hanging out in the alpaca shelter so we designed the new house to be like this and built it next to the alpacas.
It has all the mod cons that your modern hen requires
We locked the hens up for 5 days so they would know where to roost and then let them out
Of course they have plenty of space to freerange in … now if they could just get back into the swing of laying eggs (and laying them in places where we can find them) it would be great
