We're always looking for ways to keep our girls happy and recently commissioned research from University of Bristol to better understand chickens. This will inform ways we can continue to improve the playhouses and general welfare conditions we provide for our hens: Have a read of some of the research highlights here http://thehappyegg.co.uk/happy-eggs-from-happy-and-intelligent-hens/
Today is National Poultry Day - a day especially for our girls! Here's a photo of them celebrating and enjoying the March sunshine
