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. Unfortunately Lupin’s condition wasn’t good. Despite medication for the last 2 weeks there were […]

A quadruple vet appointment today as some of the girls have been under the weather for a few days and we wanted to get them checked out. For Blossom, Harebell and Orchid, they have crops with fibrous material in them that has reduced, but not gone completely. Their demeanour is good though and they’re eating […]

The Hazels have been with us for 3 weeks now and overall we’re really pleased with how the injured hens are progressing. We’ve set up a large run for them in the barn with a perch, cardboard boxes for amusement, sleeping and laying, and there are plenty of food and water stations for them to […]

Of the 7 hens we re-homed at the weekend most are doing fine and they’ve all been assessed and placed into appropriate coops in the barn. There are 2 (Honeysuckle and Marigold) that are in a sectioned off area and they appear to doing well. Petunia – that had a prolapse and was limping – […]

Today was spent properly assessing and settling in the Hazels in their new accommodation, and of course giving them all a name! Honeysuckle (orange leg ring) appears fine and we’ve put her in a temporary run with Marigold (yellow leg ring) and Rose (red leg ring), who also appear to be okay. Jasmine (white leg […]

There were a few hens at the BHWT re-homing today that were a little poorly and needed a bit of TLC – so they came home with us! When unloading the hens from the crates into the marquee we noticed one had a broken wing, and we volunteered to take that hen back with us. […]
