Chicken Rescue by Catherine Evans :: 31st May 2009

We have acquired 5 new hens this week from our local free range egg farm. They were destined for the chop as the farm replaces its flock every year to maintain maximum egg production. These 5 have had a lucky escape and seem to be settling in well and already laying too – eggs have doubled in quantity since they arrived! Hopefully these comercial hens will continue to lay regularly throughout the winter months when the rare breed ones stop.
