Battery Hen Thread!

Discussion in 'Pictures & Stories of My Chickens' started by Celtic Hill, Jan 27, 2011.

  1. I drove around this town that is about 30 minutes from my house for about 2 hours looking for this egg farm today. I think they hid where they keep the chickens. Then I had a "light bulb" moment - google maps. Of course I thought of this just now! Lol! So I found long thin buildings with things that look like feeders on the side. Does that sound like a factory egg farm? If so I would like to go there tomorrow. I can't stand that town it's in, the whole place is like a creepy neighborhood but..

    Surprisingly, she is super sweet! She likes to be held. She also like to talk to me.
