    Hi I had the pleasure of looking after my neighbours chickens whilst they were away, I enjoyed them so much I would like my own, I really want to rescue ex battery chickens and give them the best in life I can, any advice would be greatly received! Thanks

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Yes, it is very rewarding to rescue birds that otherwise would not have a second chance at an enjoyable life. Sumi has left you with some great links. There are several of them her on BYC. Here is another link as well. This woman really knows her stuff on ex battery hens....https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/855553/where-do-you-get-rescue-battery-hens-from

    Enjoy all your adventure with them and welcome to our flock!

    It is heart warming to see the difference in photos and videos in ex-batt hens AND then afterwards when they have morphed into REAL live chickens.[​IMG] to all kind souls who take these ladies in and give them a forever home
