    Hi - just got our six ex battery hens from the 7.500 that were saved from the slaughterhouse here in Ireland. They are joining our family of two horses, two dogs and four cats all of which were rescues. I am amazed at how quickly they have adjusted to the wide open world and am now wondering why on earth we didn't get any before..... they are an absolute joy.....

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad you have joined us.

    The Learning Centre is a great resource, even for experienced chicken keepers - loads of info on anything chicken. https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Not sure if Ireland has its own country thread, but just try typing it in the search box and see if you have any joy - its good to link up with local BYC members.

    All the best
