Some hens had a terrible start in life and will therefore stay with us forever, Pickle was almost flat, squashed in a cage of 8 hens (the legal limit is 4 or 5 depending on the cage size) We didn't think Pickle would recover, let alone walk and begin to lay eggs again! Pickle is best friends with Pingu who'd had Peritonitis and walks like a penguin.
Ex Battery hens are very close to our hearts. On our home page you have probably seen some of our rescued hens. They are in various stages of new feather growth. Some from the most recent rescues still have bald bits and look tufty, whereas the ones who've been here a while are fully feathered and the only sign of them ever being battery birds are their prominent breastbones which never seem to fatten up.
