last month i adopted 3 battery ladies for $3.50 each! they are great chooks, fantastic pets it takes a while for the trust to build up the are now just starting to eat from my hand and chasing me around for treats they even snuck into the house a few times. I just want everyone to adopt a few they are fantastic and they will grow into beautiful shavers, its so rewarding knowing that they are having the life a chicken needs to have. Also it is a fair bit of fun watching them learn how to be happy hens! these are my girls off exploring! Being Chickens!
