A milestone today as The Laurels reached 1 year with us. This is the group of 12 hens we re-homed in May 2017, named after Laurel, and a few weeks ago we were hopeful that all 12 would make it to this stage but sadly we lost 4 from this group recently, so today was a celebration for the remaining 8 hens.
Every day that a re-homed hen has is a one they would not have otherwise had, and for a hen to have had a year of living a free life is something that we aim for with all the hens we re-home. We made a cake for the girls; a base of mixed corn that was topped with scrambled egg icing and a ‘1’ made from peas, which was promptly devoured before the girls returned to the shade and a cool drink.
Happy Henniversary Buttercup, Daisy, Iris, Pansy, Peony, Petal, Poppy, and Violet!
