A special enclosure has been built for two hens – Agathe and Marianne -- on the territory of the Elysee Palace in Paris, the official residence of the President of France. reports that President of France Emmanuel Macron has opened a henhouse on the territory of the presidential residence, according to the latest publication on the official Twitter account of the Elysee Palace.

The coop will serve as a home for two hens called Agathe and Marianne, a unique gift to the French leader from one of the country's farmer cooperatives.

A video attached to the Tuesday post shows the hens arrive at the palace. In the video, Agathe and Marianne are introduced to Macron's dog Nemo, a three-year-old Labrador-Griffon that he and his spouse Brigitte Macron adopted from a rescue shelter in August last year.

The hens will be live in special little houses with nameplates on them.

Former French President Francois Hollande had a female Labrador called Philae — after the first spacecraft to land on a comet — during his tenure at the Elysee Palace, which has a large garden for pets to cavort in.

The black Labrador puppy was also a gift to Hollande from a Montreal-based foundation for French veterans to thank him for meeting with them during his visit to Canada in November.
