A bit of masculinity
Research revealed to us that hens are much happier in the presence of a cockerel. It showed that the girls move around more, spend less time watching for predators, and act even friendlier to one another when there's a male about.
Because we don’t have cockerels on our farms, we decided to give our girls the next best thing when we saw these findings. In 2012, we released our first ‘Nice Pecks’ cockerel calendar, and due to its incredible success, we followed it up in 2013 with another calendar full of hunky heartthrobs.More on 'Nice pecks'
