Oh dear, Gareth, I’m so sorry your circumstances have changed. We were all very interested in your journey to getting your hens and they look lovely birds. I hope you and your family are OK, and that you’ll find a solution to your problems. You’ve put so much hard work into making the setup and launching out into chicken keeping, that it’s worrying to hear your news today. Do please let us know how you get on - we are a sort of family on here, although most of us never get to meet in person.

Thanks Marigold,

I do love my hens, they are a calming influence on me, My Black Rock, Camilla, loves to sit on my shoulder when I'm poo-picking and one of my Swedish Flowers, Margaret, is very tame and chatty! They have great characters.
I have invested a lot of money into my setup but I'm only really interested in making sure my girls have a good, spacious new home. I know I will not be able to recoup the costs but that's fine, I'll put it down to experience.
The breeder said she'd take them back in once lockdown is over but I imagine they will have less space until she finds them a home and I have someone who can only take 2 of them but I do not really want to do that.

Thank you so much for your help and guidance.
