Hellow from the Emerald Isle

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi - just got our six ex battery hens from the 7.500 that were saved from the slaughterhouse here in Ireland.  They are joining our family of two horses, two dogs and four cats all of which were rescues.  I am amazed at how quickly they have adjusted to the wide open world and am now wondering why on earth we didn't get any before..... they are an absolute joy.....

Hello & welcome! :)   Thank you for rescuing, they make wonderful additions I'm told. I'm sure they will be laying wonderful eggs for you in short order...
