The Roses 1 Year Henniversary

the-roses-1-year-henniversary

A milestone today as The Roses reached 1 year with us! The Roses were a group of 10 hens we adopted in November 2017 and unusually were re-homed at 90 weeks rather than the usual 72, making this day even more special as they’re about 4 months older than they would typically be at their […]
