New hens

We brought 75 point-of-lay hens to the farm on Wednesday 8th April, to bring our flock number over 400 for the first time. With the amount of veg box orders and shop customers we have at the moment we could use some extra eggs!
This is the first year that we have not offered our old hens for adoption by local small-holders and gardeners, due to the ongoing Covid-19 lock-down. We have kept them ourselves, and they are currently teaching the new girls all their bad habits...
