Hi this is my first post so sorry If this has been a topic a while ago. Two weeks ago I rescued four battery hens. They are wonderful but totally bald and very underweight. I was told to give them some warm porridge oats (made with water) in the morning to help warm them up but I was wondering if this is ok? Will oats harm them? During the day i dig up worms from the garden and They get an ex battery mash food and at about 8pm I give them some cooked vegetables (I use a wide variety but swede and parsnip seems to be popular) to warm them up before bed. They have a poultry tonic in their water too but is there anything else I can do to help encourage feather growth? Or do you have any tips on things I can do to put condition on them? I would be very grateful for any advice as these are my first chickens and I'm very keen to learn how to give them the best possible life after their terrible start.
