Re-homing hens

Every spring we re-home the occupants of one of our sheds of laying hens in order to make room for the next point-of-lay flock that we buy. That time has now come, so we have 60 hens looking for new homes in the local area. They are now three years old, and have spent their lives so far in a big field with plenty of grass and fresh air. They are Colombian Black-tails, so are calm birds bred for egg-laying, and ours are still laying a few eggs despite their age.

We are asking for a suggested donation of £2 per hen. They will be happy in a back garden or small-holding, and are used to human contact. Please phone us on 788454 with any questions, or to reserve your hens and arrange collection.
