Ex-battery hens, 6 of them, were brought home yesterday from the collecting point in Trellech, near Monmouth, organised by The British Hen Welfare Trust.
Photos below show them arriving; and then again today, in the sunshine.
Good that it’s sunny – no feathers to keep them warm, sadly.
The run is temporary – they need to know where their coop is and to be able to stand up for themselves with the other animals before it can be removed. Picasso, the cream legbar rooster, is already keen to add them to his flock and is showing them feed.
Incredibly, one hen laid an egg this morning!
Update: Sunning themselves – and late to bed this evening too!
