We collected them this morning from the farm, they were barn hens and thank goodness, we didn't have to leave any behind and we then took our allocate lot to the rehoming centre and off they went to there forever homes :lol: lucky girls.
when we were catching them in the barn I just wanted to shout.....come on girls, if only you knew today you would be seeing sun, smelling fresh air!!!

I am weary,dirty and smelly.....gonna have a hot shower and a cup of tea....

I am going to get some more after the summer. I have too much going on at the moment to commit. I feel privileged to be able to help. Would love some feedback from the new owners x

Thank you for those kind words but to be honest I feel i am privileged to be allowed to be part of the rehoming. I was also lucky enough to chat to the farmer. Dispute my previous opinion, he didn't have cloven hooves horns and a pointed tail! I felt he really cared about the hens and was doing the best he could with what he had! I honestly thought I would dislike him...maybe I wanted to but I really didn't

A big thank you to the teams that did the rehomings yesterday.

Our 5 have managed to lay 4eggs this morning as a thank you.......Yorkshire pudding tonight! They spent most of the late afternoon just staring at the garden and made it up the ladder to bed without a fuss. :clap:

Ah that's great news, from your address I guess you got the girls we collected from the barn yesterday. A nice big thank you from them and from me too. I am so happy for them, they had a long traumatic day....worth every minute though xx
