Henrietta the Hen
Henrietta Hen came to live at Ahimsa Village a couple weeks ago after being attacked by an aggressive rooster at a friend’s place. She is missing feathers on her head and body but otherwise seems healthy, laying an egg nearly every day. We are in the process of resurrecting the old chicken coop and pen. Mostly we let her run free. She appears very happy exploring the yard and gardens. We are learning much about chicken habits and enjoy watching Henrietta’s explorations around the run and listening to her soft clucking. Eventually we would like to find one or two chicken or duck companions for her. Check out our new Farm Animal Sanctuary page.
