Chicken & Egg. Welfare and Food Together.
And Finally
Hens – not just ex-bats – are survivors and they have a serious will to live.
Take the story of Lilly Savage (great name!) who suffered a bad injury and was
found by Sarah Bache. After two months of TLC, physio and the right veterinary
treatment, Lilly recovered from her serious leg injury and has gone on to enjoy
a free range retirement with Sarah’s other hens, plus her seven rescue dogs!
Pictured here is Lilly with Maisey Pig, the pug.
All too often we hear of hens who have been put to sleep as a result of advice
from a vet. In reality, with love and the right care many can make a full recovery,
and Lilly is a shining example of how a hen can go on to live a full and happy life
after facing down adversity.
