Fly High Harebell

Today we lost Harebell. She was one of the 11 hens that became ‘The Petunias’ that were re-homed in August 2017 and had over 270 days with us. Harebell arrived as one of the most feather-bare and nervous hens we’ve re-homed. She didn’t like being around the others at all, and after settling them all […]

Lupin has gone downhill the last couple of days and Harebell and Jasmine were due a check-up after their visit to the vet a few weeks ago, so all 3 hens put their seatbelts on and we drove to the vets.

Harebell has been with us for 2 months now and the transformation that she’s made in that time is amazing. Not only has she grown a beautiful set of feathers, but mentally, she has gone from a petrified hen that insisted on sleeping on her own in a cardboard box to one that is near […]

Welcome to The Petunias

At the BHWT re-homing today unfortunately there were 3 hens with prolapses that we took to one side and treated – by cleaning the hen and then Sarah with a medical glove on and Sudocrem on her finger, carefully pushed things back to where they should be. We put these hens in our crate by […]
