The exbat ladies are settling in so well! All 6 still need names as I’m currently referring to them as the colour of their leg bands πŸ™ˆ I’m thinking of choosing names of flowers and herbs! 🌷 I truly wish everyone could experience where the eggs they buy come from. Spending time with these hens would open a lot of eyes to how smart, inquisitive and completely lovable they are. How much they value their space to peck, forage and dustbath. They do it ALL day long! 🌱 No chicken, or animal, should ever have to suffer in a cage to feed us, there is ALWAYS a better way. This little madam does look a bit ruffled and has a lot of learning and feather growing to do before she will feel 100%. But she has come so far from where she and her sisters were, they’re living their best life yet! But I can’t imagine how they would feel knowing that so many chickens have replaced them in the cages now they are home! 😒 #farmsnotfactories #BHWT #buyfreerange β€’ β€’ #backgardenchickens #chickensofinstagram #happyhens #exbatteryhens #freedom #freerangeeggs #freerange #hensofinstagram #petchickens #raiseyourown #ukhens

My Nestin’ Herbs are now available to buy on Esty πŸ€— I have always used fresh and dried herbs with my ladies and would love to be able to share my personal nesting box mix with your flock too. I sprinkle a handful in their nests, coop and dust bathing area when needed to keep things smelling fresh and looking lovely at the same time. I’ve included my hens favourite herbs such as lavender and chamomile for their calming and relaxing properties as well as lemon balm and mint to help to repel those pesky ectoparasites! This mix is a great help for that looming moody broody season πŸ₯ Take a look on my shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheLakeHouseHens?ref=search_shop_redirect β€’ β€’ #herbs #herbalremedies #chickensofinstagram #homemade #herbal #repellent #natural #fresh #backgardenchickens #ukhens #chickenkeeping #raiseyourown #esty

This gorgeous boy went off to a lovely home today, where he will be reunited with some of his siblings and rule a flock of his ownπŸ€— All the boys related to Rupert (my first Silkie boy) have had the most charming characters, they have been so docile and attentive to the hens. This fella will surely be missed 😘 As he leaves us this means there will be no Silkie and bantam babies this summer as he was my last Bantam Cockerel! 😱 Which I haven’t quite accepted yet 😒 Lenny the leg bar is still very much with us and is doing a great job of taking care of our large flock. He wasn’t very pleased with there being two male figures around the coop, so he will be the only one pleased that Mr. Roo has gone! I’m excited to see what mix of chicks and eggs we get from him this spring! Already dreaming of the thick grass and warm sunshine β˜€οΈ β€’ β€’ #Cockerel #silkie #bantam #petchickens #chickensofinstagram #freerangechickens #happyhens #hurryupspring #chickens #cockerelsofinstagram #ukchickens

Meet Lenny πŸ’™ Our only resident roo. He is a gorgeous 6 month old Legbar that I hatched during summer. He will be helping to provide us with hatching eggs and lots of doodle doos! He has his own bed indoors to keep the noise down in the mornings outside. But during the day he roams with all his ladies, he is the perfect little protector. β€’ β€’ #hensofinstagram #petchickens #autumn #cockerel #cockerelsofinstagram #legbar #hatchingeggs #growyourown #backgardenchickens #freerange #happyhens #gentleman
