We are thinking of keeping a few hens but I was hoping to hearing from some people who had already experienced this before taking the plunge. Thanks for your help!
Well you should always keep a few hens, never one alone as they are social creatures and need to live in a group. We once kept a cockrel with our hens and it was a nightmare because he used to beat them up (and make a lot of noise).
Useful to know, thanks! Any ideas where I could buy a few hens here? (Or adopt them?)
I have just seen a lady on Facebook advertising that she has about 40 ex battery hens to rehome from outside Munich. I will send you her name by private message.
