Our hens enclosure is home to around 10 hens and 2 roosters. Our hens are all ex-battery hens and have been rescued and came here to live, for the rest of their life. Commercially, hens after 18 months old produce less eggs so are not viable for commercial businesses to keep and roosters are of no use so at 8 weeks old are used to make dog meat. All the animals at Fermanagh Fun Farm are treated as pets and won't enter the food chain. We still get some eggs in the spring / summer and we let our hens rest from laying eggs over the autumn / winter period. Hens need between 12-15 hours of sun light to produce one egg and will lay an egg around every 25 hours. Commercially, to have hens laying eggs all year round, artificial lighting is placed in their enclosure to give the hens the light they need to produce an egg. As the hens enclosure sponsor you'll be the only person who sponsors their enclosure for 1 year. Your sponsorship money goes to wards their care and welfare. As a thank-you you'll get one free pass to visit and meet hens, a photograph and a certificate. A plaque with your name on it will displayed in her enclosure, to let people know visiting you're her sponsor. This makes the perfect present, gift and memory for all animal lovers. A perfect opportunity to advertise your business and be seen to be supporting such a worthwhile cause.
