Great Brit-Hens do us proud

It's been a disappointing few weeks with all our sporting heroes crashing out of the football or tennis, leaving England and the whole of Great Britain deflated.

However, our little hens, all over Great Britain have the most amazing talent and we should be proud of them.

My girls, along with millions of other little hens, score nearly every day when they deliver a fantastic food source for us humans to eat - just by laying one of their precious eggs!

They don't get paid millions of pounds for their talent, they just ask to be treated well and to be given a good standard of living.

I often feel like I am finding something very special when I open the nest box to discover yet another one of their little treasures nestling in the straw.

The sporting tournaments will come again for those to show off their sporting prowess , but for once in a while it's a good thing to acknowledge the simple yet amazing achievement of our great little Brit-hens!!


  1. Hi Diane,
    Well our British sporting human types have been somewhat left with egg on their faces.
    So here's to the Great Brit-Hens from the Canadi-Hens :-)

  2. The difference between your hens and the England football team is that ... your hens can be relied upon!
