Doncaster girl’s hen party

Young Ava Chesney, from Doncaster, had a close encounter with a hen when her family visited the World of James Herriot attraction in Thirk, North Yorks.

Ava, five, and her seven-year-old brother, Will, saw the six different breeds of hen used to recreate a scene similar to those the 1930s vet met on his farm rounds.

A children’s competition is being held to name them with a prize of free entry for the winner’s family.
