    You can always call an egg farm near your area and see if they have spent hens. they would be a year old and still laying very well. Plus you would be doing a great thing rescuing them from those nasty conditions.

    You can sometimes see free or really inexpensive hens on Craigslist. Sometimes people can't sell all their chicks and get overwhelmed.

    I got my first hens from craigslist for 10 per. Check there everyday and you might find some cheaper.

    Gee, I'd like some free money. I'd be happy to take someone's old wrinkled, icky, torn bills of any denomination (USA currency please). Promise to give them a good home, and not use on booze, drugs or gambling.
