The Animal Care Mentors have been doing a grand job, looking after our animals! It is a difficult job, though, when it is cold and wet and the hen run has been getting very wet and muddy. The area does not drain very well and we were getting lots of wet and muddy hens… and pupils!

Mr Chadwick & WildlifeKate got together and decided that a roof over the area would greatly improve it! Ordering all the materials online, Mr Chadwick set to task, building the structure on which to put the roof.

The hens are very interested and very pleased with how their new roof is coming on!

A massive Thank you to Mr Chadwick and his son, who helped out. We are going to have much happier and drier hens (and kids) this winter :o)
