    I run two pens of chickens. I started with a pen of Orpingtons, and then started a pen of Shavers. The Shavers are ex-battery hens.

    Hi, thanks for the welcome.
    I thought that some of the ex batteries would not last long as they where in a terrible condition. I have had them a year now and its good to watch them digging and sun bathing and doing every thing that a free range hen does. They are really enjoying life, it didn't take long for them to learn. I am also getting very large eggs from them too. ( maybe their way of saying thank you.)
