We follow Alan, Owen and Ozzy – three older men grappling with the challenges of growing old in a modern world. They expose the seldom explored issues of loneliness, depression and dementia but find comfort and company in the new hens at their quirky supported living scheme. This documentary tackles the sometimes difficult reality for ageing individuals and the transition to life in supported living schemes. Thousands of older residents are silently and stoically battling chronic loneliness, clinical depression and undiagnosed dementia while having to adapt to a rapidly changing world. We lift the lid on this delicate topic and draw the viewers into the day to day lives of three older men.

    Our original hen keeping adventure came to an end in January 2013, when a fox took our entire brood of hens. But don’t let that put you off … you can find the story at The Hen House Archive where there are still lots of stories, photos, and information about keeping hens I hope you'll find useful.
