Go free range for pancake day
Today is pancake day so make sure that when you're making up your batter you remember battery hens and go free range instead.
The Smallholder Range is proud to support the British Hen Welfare Trust www.bhwt.org.uk
a charity that campaigns for better hen welfare and rehomes hundreds of ex-battery hens each year. With all eyes on pancakes today, it is important that free range eggs are chosen - not only do they taste better but they also ensure hens have had a good quality of life. And if you're short of time and buying pre-made pancakes, check the packaging to ensure the eggs used are also free range.
If you're lucky enough to have your own hens, feeding a healthy, complete and balanced feed such as Smallholder Range Natural Free Range Layers Pellets will ensure wonderful eggs with a golden yollk. For ex-battery hens the specially formulated Ex-Bat Crumbs or Pellets will do the trick.
