In line with current regulations, our birds are all being kept inside their runs to minimise contact with other birds, so obviously they are at risk of getting a little bored! Enrichment is an essential part of keeping animals as it lets them perform natural exploration behaviours which then reduces stress. Here are some of our chickens checking out some forage boxes rather than having their dinner served in a bowl 🐓 #chickens #chickensofinstagram #enrichment #forage #leaves #straw #corn #layers #littertray #natural #behaviour #boredombreaker #animalrescue #animalcharity #ferneanimalsanctuary

Posted @withregram@mattisspiderman Hi everyone! I'll be doing, a 12 days of Christmas daily stream to raise money for charity! I'll be doing this in collaboration with @inevitablyissie who will be raising money for her own causes! The two charities I'm raising money for are Cooking with Cody and the Ferne Animal Sanctuary two fairly local charities that I believe could use the money that we could raise for them! tune into www.twitch.tv/themattfowler from 9pm (UK time) every day to catch me playing games in honour of these causes or click the link in my bio to donate! P.S. Don't feel as if you have to donate what so ever just tuning into the stream will help out a lot 🙂 Also check out Issie. www.twitch.tv/inevitablyissie #twitch #twitchstream #twitchstreamer #charitystream #charity #smallstreamer #streaming #christmas #spiderman #spidermancosplay #cosplayer #cosplayer #animalcharity #cookingwithcody

Elf on the Sanctuary ⭐ Day 2 Elf started helping Kirsty with some cattery laundry today, but then realised he should probably sanitise himself before going all over the site! Maybe he's not so naughty after all? We will have to wait and see.... #elfonthesanctuary #naughtyelf #christmas2020 #followme #fun #washingmachine #animalrescue #animalcharity #ferneanimalsanctuary

From NOW until 12pm Tuesday 8th - the Big Give! Also it is Giving Tuesday, so why not help if you can?! We only have ONE WEEK to do this, so we really need your help 🙏 All we need is each of you wonderful followers to donate £2 each and we will be well on our way to our target! For this campaign, we have a challenge of raising £1900 in donations in the Big Give for the amount to be doubled 😲 meaning one donation has twice the impact, and of course at no extra cost to you! This means that for every £1 you give to Peewee, Primrose gets £1 too 🐐 Or every £1 you give to Billie means Blossom gets £1 as well 🐖 You get the idea 😉 To donate, please head to our bio and follow the link to "the Big Give". Here you can read our campaign. You can also follow @thebiggiveorg on Instagram 😊 We know we're asking a lot from you lovely supporters right now, but honestly every penny counts! Peewee, Primrose, Billie, Blossom and ALL of their friends rely on you guys to keep them happy and healthy Thank you so much to you amazing lot 🥰 #ChristmasChallenge20 #thebiggive #biggive #nevermoreneeded #christmasgiving #charities #fundraising #pleasehelp #givingtuesday #supporters #thankyou #pleasedonate #animalrescue #animalcharity #ferneanimalsanctuary
