it's been a busy start to the week as yesterday we saw the full PR launch of the www.hennypennyhenhouses.co.uk website.
We combined this with a targetted media campaign covering both printed and electronic media. To my delight we had 2 immediate requests for interviews and photos, with other promises of coverage. I can't mention any names for now, but will let you know when it happens - all very exciting.

North Yorkshire received its first snowfall last Saturday night. As it fell silently overnight onto the thatched roof of the Henny Penny 'Manor House', our chickens stayed nice and warm as they huddled together on their perches.
Next morning, the girls were so funny as they looked out of their windows waiting for me to come around the corner with their breakfast. I suppose it’s just like ordering room service in an hotel!

Over the last two weeks we've kept the four new ex-battery hens (that we picked up from the British Hen Welfare Trust) safely separated from the rest of our flock. This is an important period for the birds to regain some strength before meeting the rest of our girls. We've fed them ex-battery crumb to help their general health, the regrowth of their feathers and of course egg production.

Last weekend I rescued 4 more ex-battery chickens, thanks to Wendy at the British Hen Welfare Trust. This is the third occasion I’ve rescued chickens, and I’m pleased to say that these girls don’t look too bad.
They have plenty of feathers, unlike my previous batch who hardly had a feather between them, but have now bounced back and are in fine fettle). In fact the only sign that these birds haven’t had a great life so far is that their combs are very floppy and pale pink.
