    How Humane Are No-Crow Rooster Collars?

    Rescue chickens right where I live ❤

    On our regular walk we discovered a run with 20 pretty plucked and poor looking chickens. I knew instantly those are rescues from the egg industry. That was later confirmed by their new owner.

    Saw this on the chickens comb today and not sure what to think about it, she's one of a batch of rescue ex-caged hens so condition is not brilliant but we would like to make sure no one gets any worse.

    Indoor chicken coop

    Hello, we recently came upon a young hen that needed rescue. She was found in a snow bank in a driveway all by herself. (possibly dropped by a hawk) Regardless, my fiance and I had chickens before and decided to take care of her. We plan to get a new set of baby chicks in the spring anyway. We...
