I am lucky enough to live in glorious West Cornwall with my husband Gary, daughter Caroline, five cats and (currently!) nine ex-battery or rescue hens. I am completely addicted to my ex-batts who have taken over my life! I am a passionate campaigner for the little battery hen, help find homes for rescue hens and in particular try to highlight their plight by writing about them and raising awareness wherever I go.
I write a regular column for Your Chickens called Batty about Ex-bats and have also written about my hens for Smallholder, My Cornwall and Psychologies magazines, as well as the Poultrykeeper website. I have written a book, A Beginner’s Guide to Caring for Ex-batts, that has (briefly!) been a number one best-seller and helps to raise money for the smaller hen rehoming charities.
I hope you enjoy the blog.
