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!
We were thrilled to be featured in the Guardian Newspaper back in March this year. Being able to share what we do with so many people has been wonderful. If you have a minute or two, have a look at the full article here.
Here at Hens For Hire HQ we have hens of all shapes and sizes, you birds we are growing on to join the school hens, girls who have retired plus a few of my favourites!
If you follow us on twitter you know we are also promoting hen re-homing through the British Hen Welfare Trust. We decided to adopt our own hens through the BHWT website, its a great way to hug a hen if you haven’t got room for some at home. Meet our girls…Minerva and Little Flo.
