Organic Eggs? You need a Hen Home

Over the past few weeks I’ve been watching Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s Chicken Out campaign on Channel 4 with interest and it certainly has opened my eyes to the appalling conditions in which we raise our feathered friends. I guess I’ve always known that battery hens were kept in cramped conditions, but not to such an extend.

So what can I do? Well the most obvious change I can make is to ensure that I always buy free range or organic eggs, but actually I can go one better than that. My friend Stuart has just designed and built a wooden hen home so that he can have his own pet chickens in his garden.

The Hen Home

Each chicken should produce about an egg a day. You can’t get fresher than that!
