Barping hen joins team at the Cock ….

We’re delighted to announce that the aptly named Cock Tavern in Hackney
is the winner of our 2017 award for  Exceptionally Dedicated Pickled Egg Missionary Work. Congratulations to everyone there! Their enthusiasm for the pickled egg is truly brilliant. We’ve organized a very appropriate  prize- they’ve won their very own pub sponsored hen!

This a scheme run by the British Hen Welfare Trust. The Cock  got to choose a hen with a character they thought  suited their pub. After much deliberation over a line up of beautiful girls the Cock chose Primrose……

Primrose is a cheeky hen! She was adopted in Cornwall in January 2016. She has developed a very distinct cluck which is more like a ‘barp’ and she’ll happily chat away to anyone (or anything!) who’ll listen. Her absolute favourite thing in the world is food. Second to that is breaking into the house where she’ll find very unique places to lay her eggs!

So Primrose is now a virtual member of the Cock Tavern team. They”ll receive regular updates as to how she’s getting along as well as a hen ‘goodies’ pack. They have already begun to consider every eventuality to keep her on the team, enquiring  about having her stuffed when she passes on to the big chicken coop in the sky…its an idea! Long may their pickled egg love continue!
