Where will you live, should you move to a smaller house, will you have enough money, where should you invest it, should you stay with your children, should you go to an old age home, is this country safe..?
These are the worries of the hensioners. It’s no fun to be a burden to your family when you grow old, but LONLINESS and boredom are serious problems faced by the elderly. Hens can help!
Henpower in the UK, encourages older people to get involved in hen keeping as a way of:
• reducing isolation
• increasing health and wellbeing.
• Preventing lonelines
• Providing seniors with socialization
• Encouraging seniors to be creative by designing coops and purchasing and showing rare hen breeds.
• Creates inter-generational exchanges by visiting school children.
• Helping to lift the spirits of other seniors by visiting care homes with their hens.
• Encouraging activity and maintaining fitness levels.

Perhaps I can start something like this here in George? I always enjoy a good HEN PARTY *Giggle*

🐓 I am privileged to look after my 90-year-old mother right here on the farm. I make sure there is a constant flow of people and animals in her cottage.
🥚I have often caught her feeding bread to a hen with new babies. The smile on her beautiful, crinkly face says it all 🥚
We have SLIGHTLY “OLDER” BIRDS 🤣 in stock that are nice and BIG. Order a BIG chicken here!
