Georgie’s Girls
Georgina Whelan adopted Tiny, Bodie,
Matron, Scampy, Bonnie and Bernie who
now happily pootle around her home in
Worcestershire. Georgina told us her girls
would be as pleased as punch to feature
in our magazine, and it’s a lovely
opportunity for us to say
thank you ladies.
Fancy joining in? Here are some simple steps to get you started…
Adopt some hens
Spoil them with good quality feed and lashings of TLC
Explain to the girls that as part of their retirement it would be nice to help their
working colleagues by laying eggs for your egg club
Ask friends and family for a donation in exchange for gifts of freshly laid eggs
Start building a little nest egg to send to the BHWT
Once your egg round becomes regular, give it a name!
NB. Please note that anyone with more than 50 hens needs to be registered with Defra
and cannot legally sell eggs to the public. This initiative is not intended to pinch ‘trade’
from the industry but to provide a small cottage-industry style fundraiser.
Send us your first donation and information about your Club, preferably with photos
and we will send you our fab free sticker … you can’t buy it on the High Street!
If you would like to know more about the BHWT Egg Club before joining, simply drop an
email to
and she will be happy to help.
Eggs at Eyton House
Sharon Eversfield is a BHWT volunteer
for our Shropshire team and
unsurprisingly has adopted our ex-bats
on several occasions. Despite being in
retirement, Sharon’s girls agreed to
continue popping out eggs for the
benefit of others, and Sharon keeps an
honesty box which customers
generously fill!
