Hens needing homes.
The older hens from our laying flock are now three years old, and the best of their laying days are behind them. They don't eat much feed, they love pecking and scratching around in the soil, they like eating grass and weeds and snails, they lay the occasional large egg (once a week at best), and they are inquisitive little characters. They are now looking for new homes, as we need to make way for new laying hens in a few months time. If you would like to offer a home to two or more of these old girls (they need company), we have been selling them at £1 each, although we could easily be persuaded to give them away for free (or a small donation?). Please phone us on 788454, or call in.
