Out of Battery

Every so often I commission an artist to paint battery hens either during or after their time at the farm. The painting below was perfectly created by the ever-inspirational artist Ejay Basford and will be framed as a reminder as to where my own hens come from and, despite everything, how determined they are to really live.


I wonder if, at breakfast, 
With my egg upon your plate, 
You ever think about me 
Or my cruel and tragic fate.

And when your breakfast’s over 
And you toss away my shell, 
Do you realize that the cost to me 
Was one whole day in hell?

Poem by Jenny Moxham
