Last week, we welcomed four gorgeous new ex-commercial hens to Mulberry Cottage where they’ll have a happy retirement after their stressful factory lives. Named after characters from Miss Read’s Thrush Green novels, they are: Winnie, Ella, Agnes and Violet and they’re settling in very nicely, exploring the rose borders, pecking at anything that’s green and sunbathing in this glorious May weather we’re having here in Suffolk.
Here’s Agnes negotiating the ladder for the first time on her first morning with us. She did very well!
And it wasn’t long before she was venturing further afield.
