    My rescue caged hens are growing feathers on their bald bits and now have lovely red comes.
    It's a beautiful thing.
    Silvie on rescue day.

    How lovely for them to have a loving home after their past experiences. I would have loved to rescue, but no rescues near me unfortunately.

    20190920_151909.jpg Nothing better than seeing a hen in full feather!
    She spent over a year in a cage that she couldn't even stretch her wings in and that smelt so much of ammonia the farmers wore masks.
    I'm so proud of my little Sylvie.

    She’s looking great! My broiler hen has got bigger and bigger and bigger. Just want to give her a good life, no matter how long that’s for.

    Looking great! What a difference from that first photo. She looks like my hens now :) Loving her freedom, and the windfall fruit from the looks of it!
