OUR EGG RANGE

ABOUT OUR HENS

All our free range eggs are produced under the RSPCA scheme. Hens are naturally inquisitive animals with a strong desire to carry out their natural behaviours, which, with laying hens, can include:

  • Investigation Hens like to explore their environment, for example by pecking at objects and scratching at the ground to unearth things in the soil.
  • Comfort and grooming behaviours These include feather ruffling, head scratching, body shaking, wing stretching and flapping.  
  • Vocalisation When hens are not provided with access to something they need, such as a nest site or appropriate dust bathing material, they often vocalise more out of frustration, sometimes producing a specific vocalisation known as a ‘gakel-call’. Hens also vocalise to communicate with their flock mates, for socialising and warning.
