RUGGED exteriors and cocky poses are a given for pin-up calendars, but these models are a whole new breed as they prance for photographs for the world’s first calendar for hens.

The calendar features ravishing roosters set to bring some egg-citement to farms across Britain.

The poultry pin-up calendar is a reply to new research, which shows the presence of cockerels calms hens and make them feel safer, resulting in better quality eggs. The Happy Egg Company therefore decided to put together a 2013 calendar to bring some cockerel love to lonely hens in the UK.

The calendar includes an “American Beauty” style shot of a cockerel surrounded by red rose petals while another poses in front of a mirror. – Daily Mail
