Lacy is having a huge moult! I’m constantly running around the garden collecting her beautiful feathers! I have a whole heap I’m not too sure what to do with. β€’ β€’ #brahmachicken #hensofinstagram #petchickens #ukhens #backgardenchickens #freerange #chickensofinstagram #happyhens #moult

No plant pot is safe with chickens on the prowl πŸ˜‚ Mildred looks rather cute! Still fully feathered unlike the majority of the other ladies πŸ™ˆ β€’ β€’ #hensofinstagram #petchickens #ukhens #backgardenchickens #fluffybuttfriday #happyhens #freerange #gardeningwithchickens #pekin #bantam #moult

I recently graduated with a degree in Animal Management and my dissertation was on dust bathing in chickens! It was such an exciting project and further highlighted the fact that chickens NEED to dustbathe for their health and sanity and that AstroTurf is not good enough. Another reason why cages should be completely banned for the production of eggs. My ex-battery hens could do nothing but dustbathe when they arrived home, it was pure heaven for them!! πŸ’• β€’ β€’ #buyfreerange #growyourown #degree #graduated #animalmanagment #hensofinstagram #petchickens #ukhens #backgardenchickens #chickensofinstagram #stopfactoryfarming #bhwt #freerangeeggs #dustbathing #animalwelfare

Our new egg selling box 😍 Collecting eggs from the nest box can now be enjoyed by all and it’s much more weather proof for the winter months to come 🌧 β€’ β€’ #freerangeeggs #farmgatesales #ukhens #backgardenchickens #petchickens #freerange #happyhens #chickensofinstagram #hensofinstagram
