Today we welcomed the 100th hen through our doors! We got our first hens in May 2014; a group of 4 point of lay hybrids, and 4 years later 96 other hens have joined us! Sadly, a lot of those are no longer with us, but today, little Whimsey becomes hen number 100, and it’s fitting that she has that special number. We put her and the other ‘Dahlias’ outside and she soon started to show her authority over the other 6 and as there were a few poorly hens in this group we moved Whimsey in with the main flock of hens where she immediately settled in and started to try and dominate them!
She’s such a feisty and individual personality and character, quite fitting and appropriate for such a special number!
