And a merry hen party to you – Brighton Hens

December 21, 2012

So, our last hen of 2012 arrived in wet, wet Brighton but the mood was far from gloomy as the hens snuggled into the house they’d rented in Brighton.  Very familiar territory to the Menders as this is the area where all our hens in the town have been based.  We’re getting to be a […]
