Artist's Description


.
W&N watercolours on Bockingford 300gsm
Kiep’s nest in the chicken coop (Tarlton, Gauteng,SouthAfrica)
.
From beasts we scorn as soulless,
In forest, field and den,
The cry goes up to witness
The soullessness of men.

~M. Frida Hartley

Free-range eggs are laid by happy hens that roam freely around outdoors in the day and snuggle up in their barn at night. They are fed a vegetarian diet of grains and pulses with no animal by-products or fish meal. You can buy them in large, extra-large and jumbo sizes.
.
Research has shown that hens have a strong preference for laying their eggs in a nest and are highly motivated to perform nesting behaviour. Hens also show a strong preference for a littered floor both for pecking and scratching and for dust-bathing, and a preference to perch, especially at night.
