    Hi I'm Vicki and new to the group, I have 4 ex battery hens I rescued in October 2015. I have read some really helpful info on this sight and have already pulled my sickest rescue girl ( weezer) from deaths door.
    I would like to say thanks to all who leave info for us novices to follow [​IMG]

    Hi Vicki and [​IMG] - sorry to hear of the passing of one of your flock, but good for you in rescuing ex batts.

    Joining your state thread will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area, which can be helpful (just type the name of your state in the search box).

    All the best

    Hi Vicki, very nice to meet you. Glad Weezer pulled through. Sorry you lost Edna. I think her background as an ex-bat hen set her up for problems later in life.
