The Hens For Hire Experience
As seen on TV - We were featured in a series of ‘Our School’, which began airing on Tuesday, 3rd September 2019, on the CBBC channel.
We had a whole episode chatting chickens with the wonderful year 7 class. In this episode, you’ll see how the students are quick to engage and how much they can learn by interacting with Chicks and Hens throughout the whole cycle. It’s a great example of what the Hens for Hire service is all about. To learn more about our service, contact us today.
