Chickens

We would like to introduce you to our 'girls' who have moved into the Fox and Hounds to enjoy a peaceful retirement They have come to us as ex battery hens.

Initially when they arrived they could hardly open their eyes, struggled to stand up, falling and tripping over and would force themselves into small spaces as they struggled to overcome their agoraphobia. But...they are now venturing out of these spaces and to watch them stretch their wings for what must be the first time in their lives and start to enjoy dust baths and sun bath is very special indeed.

Our girls came to us via the British Hen Welfare Trust; if you think you might like to give some chickens a happy retirement please visit the website at http://www.bhwt.org.uk/
