    I adopted 3 battery hens about 2 months ago.

    They are slowly getting to trust me. From not knowing what soil is to digging up my garden. From running away from me to pecking my feet to liking a cuddle.

    If a chook can learn to trust humans these girls have.

    but my husband and I had booked a holiday before we adopted them and my neighbour says she will look after them, but I am worried.

    I think I need to be reassured that my chooks will look after themselves

    How nice the ex-bats are getting comfortable with their new home!

    Before you go, have the neighbor over so you can show her where everything is (feed, 1st aid kit, etc.). Give her the rundown on what your routine is and have it all in writing so she can refer to it while you're gone. Be sure she has your phone number or an emergency contact.

    Hope you enjoy your holiday!

    We are back!

    The cat and the chooks met us at their doors.

    I did tell our neighbour to check for eggs but not sure if she did as we have 6. The lala girls made me check for slugs and the cat has done to bed on dads knee.

    Oh and Scout Bear says find him on FB
