One small step for hen-kind!

I opened the shed door for my lovely ex-battery hens again this evening. As you can see we are making progress - SLOW progress, but progress none-the-less! You can clearly see a brave little hen's foot over the threshold. Then they retreated again. The relative freedom of the garden shed is obviously still more than enough for now.


  1. Isn't it just so very sad, Sara - but in a week or two I am sure they will be scratching away and really enjoying their life. My hens just wander in the fields and only come in a sundown. Happy hens lay happy eggs! Thanks for visiting - have put you on my blog list.

  2. Bless the little hearts, it must be so scary for them that first taste of freedom.
