Free to Roam
Woodland hens have the total freedom of beautiful farms with rolling pasture and lots of trees. Every hen can roam as far and wide as she likes, within the paddocks.
Once the sun rises in the mornings we open up the barns. At Ti Kouka and Glenpark the hens can go out into the winter gardens (litter areas) and/or the pastures beyond...
In all there are 62 hectares at our Glenpark farm and 50 hectares at our Ti Kouka farm. While most hens will not spend all day outside, some will choose to.
When outside hens are able to do what they love doing.
Hens usually move around in groups, so it is important to rotate the paddocks where they roam. This ensures the pasture is always healthy, in good condition and provide a clean environment for the hens.
At night hens almost invariably return to the security and comfort of their barns to roost.
