I thought I'd share a picture of our little kitty cabin. My husband made this for the cats to sleep inside of in the winter. It has two stories in it for the cats to share. There is a light bulb underneath to heat it when it's really cold. Our oldest daughter painted it to match the cabin!
And while the cats like it and will get inside when it's extremely cold~it is really the favorite of the chickens for laying their eggs! Right now, our little red hen is setting on her clutch of eggs~which has made the rest of the hens mad. It doesn't stop them, though--they just climb in and lay their eggs on top of her! We try to get the 'new' eggs out periodically through the day, LOL!
Hubby is going to build a couple more of these to put out in the yard and hopefully, the hens will use them, instead of the cat's cabin!
