I am writing this from my mother-in-laws house in Yorkshire. We are down here for a few days helping her with a few DIY jobs around the house. While we are having a lovely time it is bad timing as while my we are down here our new ex-battery hens have finally arrived! We adopted them in the end them through the excellent charity ‘A Wing and a Prayer’. Now we have not five as we originally intended but six lucky ladies who have now happily set up residence in the orchard/forest garden.
