chicken-and-egg - page 5

We’re right back where we like to be: phones ringing, vans loading
and hens coming out all over the country. You’ve saved the lives of 20,000 hens this
year at the time of going to print. That’s a lot of lucky girls, although the queue for
retirement never ends so please keep those calls coming!
As you see from the front cover, Nancy Birtwhistle of Bake Off fame is joining us for this
edition and tells us what it was like to be on the BBC’s biggest show. Nancy also shares
some of her favourite recipes.
We are thrilled to bits to introduce our new learning programme for primary school children –
it is AMAZING – find out on page 17 how you can become involved or sign up for a workshop at your
local school.
Time flies, and Hensus 2017 is here. For those who have not come across our Hensus before,
it's a questionnaire that helps us compile information about our ex-bat population. Once
we have the results, we’ll share the findings with you. Taking part gives you a chance to win
a £50 Lakeland voucher too – perfect timing for Nancy’s bakes I’d say.
If you’ve not tried Stokes Sauces yet, you’re missing out... we love their products
and their ethos, and think you will too, find out on page 25. Naturally we’re all about celebrating
hens, and nowwe have a fresh website page to help; much-loved Custard holds the limelight in this
edition, and we want more of you to tell the world what’s special about your hen(s).
Add a fabulous competition worth £250 from Ian Snow (definitely worth a go if you like the idea
of gorgeous homewares and clothing); our gallery, your news and views and a lot of lovely feathery
photos, and I hope you will thoroughly enjoy this edition of Chicken & Egg.
Chicken & Egg. Welfare and Food Together.
Warm wishes
