Hens

“What Comes First – the Chicken or the Egg”?!
As you would expect, for Poplars Farm, the Hens’ welfare ALWAYS comes first!

The Hens that lay Poplars Farm Free Range Eggs are allowed to roam free in the fresh air and grassland during daylight hours and have plenty of shelter from heat or humid weather if they desire it.

Of course, they can also “dust bathe” – an enjoyable pastime for the hens and a way of conditioning their plumage, removing scales and dirt from the skin.

During the evening and at night time they have the safety of their sheds, keeping them free from harm of foxes and the elements.

They feed on a diet of high quality grain which helps in preserving the hens’ health, the egg production and of course the quality of the eggs laid.

Naturally, as part of the British Lion Code of Practice, all the hens are vaccinated against salmonella and regularly tested and the hens’ welfare standard in general is assured to be higher than that even required by law.


Eggs

“As Sure as Eggs is Eggs”!!!
We’ve all heard THAT saying! It means “absolutely certain”.
