Defra Prevention Zone-Update January 2017
On 6th December Defra annouced a one month poultry prevention zone across England, Scotland & Wales. This has now been extended until 28th February 2017
Here at Hens HQ we have moved all of our hens indoors to our large Chicken Barn and covered all the entrances with netting, to adhere to the new poultry keeping regulations. As a result of the extention to the prevention zone, period all our school hire hens will be staying at Hens HQ until the end of the prevention zone.
If any schools have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Claire.
