Chicken and Egg Issue 15 - page 4-5

Spring has sprung and it’s time for new beginnings,
fresh growth and all our latest news.
Inevitably we throw the spotlight on Avian Flu, the impact of the recent DEFRA
restrictions on hen keepers in backyard flocks as well as commercial farms, and the
importance of biosecurity as most of us return to free ranging our hens.
With Easter upon us, we explain the history of the Easter egg and have a crackingly
zany interviewwith Choccywoccydoodah … if you haven't seen some of their amazing,
fantastical creations, turn to page 32! We have competitions including the chance to
win a cookery course and two nights' accommodation worth over £450 at
Ashburton Cookery School! A fabulous prize!
You can learn about clicker training your hens, we give you an update on our
fundraising appeal for the newwelfare and education centre here at Hope Chapel,
and of course it wouldn't be Chicken & Egg if we didn't include a clutch of happy
hens and your lovely stories. So read on for all things chickeny …
Warm wishes
