    Hi everyone, I'm Serena from Alberta Canada
    I recently rescued 12 battery hens and have a ton of questions.
    I started with 6 RIR hens and one RIT roo last year that were free range from a friend.
    Doodle (my roo) was extremely aggressive and attacked any person who got close so he didn't last long :( I now have a lavender Orpington roo "Thomas" along with the original 5 RIR hens and 12 (I believe) Leghorn battery hens.:p

    Welcome to BYC, Serena. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm practically your neighbor (in Kalispell, Montana 60 miles south of the Alberta border). It's great that you were able to rescue those hens. :eek:) If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Love that you have rescued. Wish I had the room to do this. I would be rescuing in no time.

    I also have a LO out there...along with a RIR rooster! And, I love leghorns. Always have to add that when I see those that have them. I have had the sweetest leghorns. Just love them.

    Thank you for taking in the ex-batts, it sounds like they are going to have a lovely home with you. I hope Thomas the roo works out better for you.

    Nice to have you here!
