    I have been interested in possibly adopting ex-battery hens. I have been doing searches online and reading articles about it, but I can't find places close to me to adopt from. Most of them seem to be in other countries. I have noticed that some people on here have adopted and I was wondering how you did it or where these rescues are at. I live in Michigan, so I don't know if there is anything close to me. I figure since I absolutely love having chickens and think that battery hens deserve to have a good life, I would like to help.

    I would just call your closest egg distributer and ask if they sell/give away their retired hens [​IMG]
