New Chicken Photos

It’s been a while since I put new photos of my other hens on the blog. You may remember how Dot, Ethel and Poppy looked when they first arrived in 2009, a very sorry sight. Just look at them now!

Hover over the photos to see who is who!

Becki crept into this photo (front right inspecting the grass for something wriggly) she has bonded well with this group after losing her pal Hope. These 4 girls were all challenged in their own way, some still are and because of this they do better in their own group rather than being mixed with the bigger and stronger Lily and Emily. It just works out better this way and everyone’s happy.

Ex Battery Hens One Year of Freedom

We have another ‘henniversary’ going on here, Becki and Hope, one year out of the cages today. I was a rescue co-ordinator this time last year for Little Hen Rescue and I helped to re-home just under 100 ex battery hens from my garden smallholding. I wasn’t planning on keeping any of the hens for myself, but for different reasons Becki and Hope bought a ticket to stay.

It was a rocky road for them both and reaching this milestone makes it all the more special. Happy freedom day girls!
