Ex battery hens

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi all, I have four ex battery hens i brought from a local farm 6 months ago. Of those six months id say they have laid for 3, only intermittently and not at all since before Christmas. I am in WA australia, so in autumn, and they are usually sold at 1 year - 18 months over here, is there any way fr me to tell their age/whether they will ever lay again or whether they have retired themselves

Thank you!

After a hen is around a year old it is hard to tell her age, I've never had a battery hen so I can't tell you much but I would read this article which maybe helpful to you: So you want to rescue a chicken... Now what?
