    Been at the chicken thing for about 4 months now. After taking so much information from this site I thought it time to say hi. Currently up to 14 leghorn hens (ex battery birds) with 1 each leghorn and Americana roosters. [​IMG]

    Thank you for rescuing ex-batt chickens. I'm sure they will reward your kindness with many eggs. You may be interested in the "Canadians, check-in-here." thread

    Greetings from Alberta; glad you are here. I also have my first flock. Pretty awesome of you to make space in your life for battery birds.

    Sorry to say I didn't get the battery hens to rehabilitate. They just happen to be the cheapest and easily obtainable mature birds. perfect to get some numbers to build a starter flock. Last time I checked there were 2000 left for sale. That being said they did grow on me. even more now since they feathered out.
