32 Chicken & Egg. Welfare and Food Together.
6. What is your favourite aspect of
hen-keeping?
Letting them out of their enclosures on a really
quiet early morning just before we start work.
They scurry off to find food – generally bits of
horse feed that has dropped out of the horses’
mouths! You can always rely on a couple of
them to be caught in the stables on the hunt
for grains. The funny part is when the horses
are led back into their stables to find an intruder
scratching up their freshly made bed! All the
horses are now fully chicken proof so they are
used to sharing their beds with them.
7. Wooden coop or plastic?
Oh – huge solid Hilton style luxury for the
Supermodels! Our chicken coops were
originally two small stables – so they are brick
built with rafters and we replaced the doors
with wire mesh fronts to prevent Mr Fox!
