Pre-Launch News!

Published on September 12, 2012 by Henny Penny in Penny's Posts

Welcome everyone to the first post on the official Henny Penny Hen Houses blog.

What is Henny Penny Hen Houses? In a nutshell they are my idea of the perfect henhouse…with a difference! As for what that special ingredient is, well you'll just have to wait until we launch on 30th September 2012.

But I can tell you a little of why I love chickens so much, and in particular rescue chickens. 2 years ago I’d never even thought of keeping chickens, that was until my mum gave me a hen house as a Christmas gift. Over the coming weeks/months, after living with my first set of girls, I realised that there were a number of things that could be improved with the design. So I did. I’ll be sharing with you more as time goes on about what to watch out for when looking to buy a coop, and what to avoid.

But back to our rescue chickens. These poor creatures have really inspired me to do all I can to make their lives as happy as possible. They arrived in a terrible state - with very few feathers they looked more ready for the oven than for a life of freedom. It was quite upsetting. But I was reassured that if they are looked after well then they are likely to bounce back to full health. I can confirm this is true in my experience, at least for most of my girls (some unfortunately died within a few days, probably from the trauma of it all).

Of all my girls, there is one who has turned out to be the most unbelievable chicken of all – Fluffy Fat Bottom, as my little boy Charlie named her once her feathers began to grow back. To look at her know you just wouldn’t know of her torrid past, and she's the cutest, friendliest girl you can imagine. She let's us pick her up and stroke her, and she never strays. What a lady!! So you can see what I mean, here’s a picture.

I’ll let you know more about Fluffy Fat Bottom in future posts – there're all great characters. And if you have chickens yourself, why not let me know about your little darlings?
