Our Feathered Friends

We have recently rescued 10 hens from the British Hen Welfare Trust. Our ladies are quickly making Tarves Primary School and Nursery their forever home! Their names, as voted for by the children, are:

  • Annabella
  • Chickaletta
  • Nugget
  • Willow
  • Pecky
  • Hen Solo
  • Aurora
  • Buttercup
  • Hermione
  • *Cappuccino*

We are so sad to say that our lovely lady, Cappuccino, sadly passed away due to complications caused by her previous treatment. We ensured that she had the best, most comfortable and happy last 4 months of her life here at Tarves. She was so loved and we are naming the hen coop after her to remember her time with us.

Thank you to all our parent/carer volunteers who help us. If you are interested in donating time or resources to help our hens, please contact us on tarves.sch@aberdeenshire.gov.uk
