It's a cheery old life being a free-range hen on a happy egg farm. Each morning, our girls are up at the crack of dawn and they’ll start each new day with a spot of exercise to shake off the sleep and stretch their wings a little. And with acres of space to do it, our hens can either get together to frolic in the fields, or take a brisk stroll alone to gather their thoughts.
Of course, it’s not just the luscious meadows on a happy egg farm that makes it such a delightful place for a hen to be; there are lovely trees and foliage to explore, creating a great environment to grow and play. And, as we know that only the happiest hens lay the tastiest eggs, we also have a whole host of wooden runs and treehouses, so they never get bored!
Because of the fresh, natural environment we provide at happy egg, welfare is something that almost takes care of itself. Our girls get to enjoy the great outdoors and will happily flap about, forage for extra snacks, give themselves a dustbath to help keep their feathers shiny and fresh, or just find a nice place to perch.
But, as all that fun can get a bit tiring from time to time, they’re never far away from a nice cosy indoor nestbox where they can relax and – most importantly – have all the privacy they need to lay their eggs. And of course, they have access to the very best food and all the fresh water they need to make it the perfect spot to get comfortable.
Through our happy egg farms, we have done everything we can to ensure our hens have a great life "down on the farm", and as you'll see when you pick up a box, the result is the most delicious eggs in the land.
