BOOK TRAILER


The Story Behind This Book
My life changed forever when I became the mum of three beautiful ex-battery hens, rehomed to me by the British Hen Welfare Trust. Far from being 'bird brained', they were intelligent, cheeky, loving animals. Immediately, I decided to raise awareness and money for the BHWT; so far this has involved, amongst other things, climbing three mountains in one day, swapping Stephen Fry a posh hotel stay for his Harry Potter audio boxset, becoming a BHWT volunteer coordinator & saving 4000 ex-bats from slaughter and, now, writing a book - Tales from the Coop: The joy of ex-battery hens.

Media Mentions

Praise and Reviews
“If you ever imagined that chickens are characterless egg-laying machines, you’d be massively mistaken... The truth is, chickens are charming, comical and endearing creatures, positively bursting with personality.
This book is a delight; packed with funny, heart-warming and amazing true stories contributed by people who share their hearts and lives with ex-bats.”
Victoria Twead, author of Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools
