12 new chickens have joined us this week, rescued from being slaughtered, to live here at the permaculture farm.

The new chickens are going to be kept in the coop for a few days so that they can get used to where to call home, then we can let them enjoy the 10 acres of field and woodland.

Not only are the chickens getting a better life but they are also doing a service, removing bugs and fertilising the soil.
