Egglympics Training

Hfh Pole Vault     Hfh Hurdles  Hfh Javelin

Our hens and pupils are getting into shape as part of this terms Egglympics competition.  To celebrate a summer of sport and the 2016 Olympics in Rio.  The challenge for the schools is to train their hens to complete some obstacles and send us the video.  Not wanting to be left out we have been having a go at Hens HQ.  You can watch our training videos via our Facebook & Twitter pages.

Our top tip for Hen training is……GRAPES! definitely the right treat to motivate the girls to join in! Also keep the training short and sweet!

Good Luck, we can’t wait to see your videos!

Coming Soon Spring 2017……….

I know that sounds a long way off but here at Hens HQ we are already busy planning our hatchings for next Spring.

For Schools that hire hens for a full school year your incubator hire is included in your hire.  For 2017 you will have a choice of what to hatch, chickens/ducks/quails

Also for all settings that hire incubators you will have the option to ‘Watch us Grow’ a fantastic opportunity to see the chicks develop into young adult birds.
