Egg Club interview

Our Egg Club is the perfect circle of hens helping hens. It raises money by swapping donations for your hens’ surplus eggs which, in turn, is donated back to us thereby helping fund our rehoming work – clucking brilliant!

But don’t just take our word for it. Here we interview Egg Club member Kat to find out what it’s like being part of our lifesaving initiative.

I have been keeping hens for a couple of years now. While I might be a newbie to some, I have an animal care background, and chickens are by far my favourite!

I heard about Egg Club whilst exploring the BHWT website! I thought what a wonderful idea! I immediately clicked the โ€œjoin nowโ€ button.

I thought it was a great way to raise funds for the BHWT and also a way of educating people. A lot of people that buy our eggs ask us a lot of questions about chickens in general and some have even adopted hens themselves off the back of this, which is even better.

We love it and we really like seeing who comes along and buys the eggs. It really does range, from children with their parents on the way home, to people walking their dogs! But we talk to most of them and they do come out of their way especially to buy our eggs!

Yes, we love being part of it- as I am on the BHWT Egg Club map I have had enquiries from further afield and people have been coming to buy the eggs and see the girls over the fence!

We get lots of customers but someone who really enjoys our girls eggs is quite a celebrity. It is the Winalot dog, called Dolly ๐Ÿ˜„ She loves having a raw egg in her dinner bowl.

I am looking forward to counting and seeing how much money we have raised for the BHWT! ๐Ÿฅš
