We visited today and my 2 girls aged 10 months and 5 years had a lovely Time. They loved seeing all the '26,000' hens roaming free and feeding all the animals. We also paid £1 extra each for the tract... read more »

My grand daughter loves Happy hens, but I thought it looked a little tied & neglected. It wouldn't take a lot of effort to significantly improve the experience. A lot of the pens & fences had tall wee... read more »
Great family day out over Easter, they did an Easter egg hunt which three while family got involved. Pick your own tray of eggs which are cheaper than the supermarket
Had a good day got to hens 2months later found out 1was a cockerel dont live close and dont drive and when. Called to tell them there mistake they wouldnt conpensate me for there mistake unless i took it back and that was impossible for me they wouldnt even meet me half way with anything
Was up this way visiting family and wanted to take the kids somewhere. Happy hens was a great little placed tucked away in the Derbyshire countryside. Lovely little tea room and some great animals to see. Think the kids had fun even in the miserable British weather. Hopefully will get chance to come back one day in the sunshine.
Highlights include: chicken pecking my bum because I stopped giving her feed, and beautiful baby goats, pigs and sheep. Lows: dead sheep in the sheering barn for over 3 hours. No one even tried to remove it. Rough handling of lambs while mothers were being sheered. Creepy religious overtone not advertised on website. Did I want crosses and mentions of god in my afternoon out with my boyfriend? Nope. The reason I will never return? Dying baby goat let with her bum soaked in her own poo in small barn near the entrance. No heat lamp, grossest water bowl ever and definitely no one pushing electrolytes and water as you are supposed to with diarrhetic goats. The pen wasn't even locked. We got some towels, washed our hands and tried to remove the worst of the feces. I hand fed her some of her pellets and tried to make her drink. Held her for a little bit and she slept in my arms. Broke my heart to leave her. We called the RSPCA but she was dead by the night after. Thanks Highfield Happy Hens for teaching me never to leave an animal in need to the care of farmers who treat it like property.
Great for kids, just ignore the crosses
