It just goes to show what happens when you give a hen the free range - they end up taking over my blog! I am sure they will make another appearance in the future as they are always clucking over something and like to share their opinions.
Exciting news with 'One Hundred Ways for a Chicken to Train its Human'. In January this year the Battery Hen Welfare Trust contacted me. They have included my book in their supporter packs.
They are a wonderful charity and work so hard to getting a better future for the millions of battery hens. They run a brilliant adoption scheme and so far have re-homed 123,550 hens into new and loving homes. Their website is great and well worth looking at, especially if you are thinking of keeping a few hens. http://www.bhwt.org.uk/
I will certainly be supporting them in the future, I love the idea of giving an ex battery hen a home, but have to be careful with my existing clan. Hens can be aggressive with new stock so I will have to introduce them gradually. In the meantime I shall be preparing a separate run so they will be able to see each other through the fence and get aquainted. Fingers crossed there will not be any 'fowl play'.
