A celebration today as The Petunias celebrated 18 months with us – meaning these 4 hens have spent the majority of her life here – which is a great milestone for them to reach! Originally a group of 11 that were adopted in August 2017 they all soon settled in and grew a new set […]

A milestone today as The Petunias reached 1 year with us. These were a group of 11 hens that came to us with 3 prolapses (Clover, Corncockle and Cover), one very petrified hen (Harebell) and several extremely bald hens but they all transformed into beautiful fully feathered brown hens. Unfortunately we have lost Campion, Clover, […]

Berry was seen first as she was the […]

A Few Sneezes

There have been a few sneezes from the flock recently and with Larkspur seeming the worst we took her to the vet this week to get checked out. She took along Marigold and Thrift too as they’d been off-colour also and could provide the vet with extra sound effects if he needed them. Larkspur was […]

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 […]
