I’m so excited! We’re finally rehoming our ex-battery chickens this weekend! The poor dears will be travelling all the way from Devon where 750 battery hens are being released for rehoming. They will then travel to Surrey where we’re picking them up to bring home to the London suburbs.
In preparation, I’ve been reading some lovely chickeny books with titles such as Hens in the Garden, Eggs in the Kitchen; Chicken Coops for the Soul; and Hen and the Art of Chicken Maintenance. But enough theory – bring on the practical!
The coop is ready, there are galvanised feeders waiting to be filled and a very anxious author who is finding it very hard to concentrate on her fiction right now! I want to meet my gals!
