Fantastic fact sheets. I read the one on worms and recognised symptons of gapeworms in our late light sussex hen - promptly going to get flubenvet - where can one buy flubenvet- would be useful to know?

I paid £12.01 inc of p&p for 60g Flubenvet from Animal Medicines . Received within two days of placing order and one day was an RM strike day in London.If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing to excess

Once they're about a year old they do and yes it is normal for them to go bald or oven-ready as some Grapes describe them The Hen Trust publish knitting and fleece pattern to make 'jumpers' for batts who are fresh off the farm to enable them to cope with the drop in temperature.
Help us make hen jumpers!If a thing's worth doing, it's worth doing to excess

Fact Sheets on Hens
Really glad you found the fact sheets helpful. As we said, we change and update them constantly as we find out new bits of info
Our biggest surprise with people is the worming, people think to worm their dogs and cats but often have never wormed their hens. People say their hens are old and have just stopped laying. More often than not, we suggest worming, and these 'old' hens start laying again!
We are busy rearing turkeys for Christmas at the moment, but from January we start selling chicks for people to raise as table birds at home - as people are much more aware of the conditions poultry are kept in these days. We usually have growers or POL all year round though.
