Hope House Happy Hens
10 Mar 2019
Our Upper School pupils have their own poultry unit which currently houses about 40 hybrid hens. The pupils are running it as an enterprise and sell eggs to the local community, as well as to staff and parents. They employ some of our Lower School pupils as egg collectors and pay them a weekly wage! They are also working hard to use this experience to gain an ASDAN Enterprise qualification.
If you would like to sample our eggs, please ring the school and order some. They really are quite delicious and so much fresher than supermarket eggs!
We also have 2 Silkie Chickens and a Silkie Cockeral with a view to hatching our own chicks for Easter. Nicola, Chinequa and Colin are beautiful creatures and very friendly.
