Our chickens & eggs

Updated: Dec 11, 2022

Our 8 chickens were hatched in our school and as a result are very tolerant of children. They were born on 9th March 2022. Members of the public can view our chickens easily from the public footpath that run along the Hogsmill River off Three Bridges Path.

Our eggs

If you are lucky enough to be at St John's School, you are welcome to take our eggs laid by our own chickens and make something delicious at home. You can find them on the way in to our playground.

If you feel you could donate a little to our funds to help us look after the chickens please follow this link . All Eggs are unvaccinated and are date stamped. They are safe to eat if cooked fully. Please return boxes if they are in good condition.

Avian Flu

Update 17 October

Following a change in the risk levels and an increase in the number of detections of avian influenza (bird flu) in kept and wild birds, the Chief Veterinary Officers from England, Scotland and Wales have declared an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) across Great Britain to mitigate the risk of the disease spreading amongst poultry and captive birds.

This means that from midday on Monday 17 October, it will be a legal requirement for all bird keepers in Great Britain to follow strict biosecurity measures to help protect their flocks from the threat of avian flu.

The Food Standards Agency has said that on the basis of the current scientific evidence, avian influenza poses a very low food safety risk for UK consumers. Properly cooked poultry and poultry products, including eggs, are safe to eat.
