We’ve only had our one chicken Dorothy for a while now, since her friends passed away. They were all battery hens which we adopted and not all of them live very long due to the stressful start in life.
We decided it was time to get her some friends!
Meet Audrey and Margo :D
We got them from a local chicken farmer. Audrey is an Amber Star and Margo is a White Star. They’re hybrids.
They’re in a pen at the moment whilst they get used to their new home and so Dorothy can see them. We’ll introduce them properly in a few days and soon they’ll all be scratching around the garden together.
We’re often asked how the cats get along with the chickens. They mostly just ignore each other. When the cats first met chickens they got flapped at which soon made them realise that chickens weren’t easy prey. Now they all have a healthy respect of each other and neither cats or chickens bother each other.
