Hens in the Spring grass

by elaine

Our hens love nothing more than fresh greens – grass, old beds of spinach from the garden, cabbage leaves, beetroot tops… they particularly enjoy scratching up roots, insects, grubs and all manner of pickings from a patch of fresh ground.

We move them around the smallholding regularly – our current henhouse is on wheels to allow it to be towed as necessary.

It is very enjoyable to see them scratch, step back and inspect the ground for what goodies it holds, and reinforces why hens are happiest outside and in the field.
