    I've seen posts and blogs about chicken rescue sanctuaries that take in spent battery hens and let them free range for the rest of their lives. Sounds like a wonderful idea if you can pull it off. Good luck!

    There's one in my part of the state. (California) It's actually a sanctuary for farmed animals.

    They do adopt out, so it's not necessarily a chickens "forever home" but it CAN be, if nobody adopts the ones there. This also means they can't take every chicken that needs sanctuary, but they're still doing a wonderful thing.

    I have also seen a lot of sanctaries that are really crowded.

    Quote:I would suspect crowding is easy to do. There is always one more needy chicken in your world.

    I, too, like the idea, but would have to be a lot richer rather than older to try something like it.
