Our Chickens

Karen has many years experience of chicken keeping and has a soft spot for rescued hens from caged egg system farms. One of our original ex-battery hens (brown hen in the photo below) was rescued in 2008, she had 5 years of freedom before passing away in 2013. ‘Emily’ was approximately 7 years old when we lost her which is excellent for a rescue hen, she’s proof that ex-caged hens can lead long and happy lives.


We keep hybrid layers and pure breed large fowl, offering a loving retirement home for ex-caged hens when space allows.
