Henny Penny Hen Houses is delighted to have been invited to participate in the 8th Countryside Live North event to be held on the Ledston Estate near Castleford in West Yorkshire on 22-23 May 2013.
The Countryside Live shows are aimed at schools to enable more children to benefit from a valuable ‘Learning Outside the Classroom’ experience.
Henny Penny founder, Penny Roberts, will be there to display our beautiful handcrafted thatched hen houses which are all made in Yorkshire. The children will be able to meet some of our rescue chickens and learn about the British Hen Welfare Trust. Penny will also be explaining why the hen houses have been designed in such a way as to ensure chickens are comfortable and safe, whilst also making sure the houses are fun, easy to clean and built to last.
Penny will describe how she first rescued some ex-battery chickens via the British Hen Welfare Trust. The children will be able to touch a chicken and see the different coloured eggs which they have laid, as well as discussing the health benefits of free range eggs and some of the lovely meals that can be made with eggs.
