Freedom at last!
Bertie our in-house Cockerel
A recent report in the Guardian Weekly tells the story of a hen called "Liberty" who lived in an egg-laying battery, has now been given a new home on an open free-range farm. She can now spread her wings! It is because the EU has banned battery cages as of the first of January. Liberty is supposed to be the very last hen to be released in the UK.
