Feel Good starts on the Farm
Why did the chicken climb the tree?
No joke - hens love perching in trees and with thousands of them on our farms, they’re spoiled for choice. The trees provide shade and shelter including stands of Manuka and Kanuka which are a hit with the local honey bees.
Acres to explore
Our hens love exploring in the long grass and they can roam quite a long way in a day. But they always know when to head back to the barn for dinner and lights out.
Fun & games
Hens are very curious and they love to explore and try new things. To keep our flocks busy and stimulated, we provide them with lots of activities, from strings of shiny CDs, to hay bales and tractor tyres to climb on and our special lucerne chaff piñatas to peck at (or as we like to call them ‘heñadas’!).
Just like supplements for humans, our hens also enjoy a few special treats that keep them in top condition. Oyster grit, made from ground up Bluff oyster shells, is a good source of calcium for strong bones and egg shells. They also love their lucerne chaff, which is packed with protein, fibre and calcium.
