Countryside Live Show 2013

Published on May 31, 2013 by Penny Roberts in Penny's Posts

Recently Henny Penny was invited to exhibit at the Countryside Live Show at Ledston estate in West Yorkshire.

We took 3 of our best behaved chickens (including Fluffy Fat Bottom) to model our forthcoming new 'Chalet' hen house, which has been designed with schools and families in mind, looking to keep either 3 or 4 chickens.

Our #1 professional ex-battery hen 'Fluffy Fat Bottom' stepped up to the plate (so to speak) in order to show the other two hens how best to display the luxurious hen houses and runs.
The girls were fabulous! They not only laid eggs the day after their 'sleepover' at Ledston over the two days, but they also met around 600 school children who were able to hold or stroke a chicken or egg for the first time. Everyone behaved impeccably, and the school children did well too!

In fact many of the kids were from inner city schools, so they had never had the opportunity to see chickens close up before. We let some of them stroke Fluffy Fat Bottom (who didn't mind at all), and we explained the benefits of free range chickens and eggs. We also craked open one of our eggs and a supermarket egg on the same plate, and asked them to point out the free range egg. I'm pleased to say that most could see the difference straight away! 
The children and teachers loved our new hen house and all voted to have one of our hen houses and chickens at each of their schools!
