    Hi and welcome :)

    I got six ex battery hens two months ago, sadly a couple got very very noisy so i found them a fantastic home and just kept two which my neighbours were happy about, they virtually live in the house and just wonder outside and sleep outside, they spend all day in the hosue though and have just worked out how to gte up stairs (but not down them lol)

    hi l have 16 and only half are laying, so what, they live in the grave yard next door in the day, and then pend at night. L have a sick one at the moment she came in small and l dont think she will ever be right but with tender loving care she may make it. I belive in leting them grow old gracefully, my first lot of hens are now about four, l lost a few
