The Roses Arrive

We brought back our latest group of hens today, The Roses, named in honour of Rose who passed away a few weeks ago. We’d reserved 8 hens but came home with 10 – we took 2 additional hens that were poorly, so will need to think of a couple of more ‘Rose’ names!

The girls settled in well, spending a few hours exploring their new environment and we made sure they all knew where the feeder and drinker were. The poorly hens in particular are fairly heavy and tomorrow we’ll weigh them all and give them a thorough check before giving them all a name and an appropriately coloured leg ring.
