    Wasn't really sure where to put this but I hope this spot works:) After watching some videos of how the hens in factory/battery farms are treated, I was completely heart broken. There is absolutely no reason any living thing should be treated like that. I was in tears after reading some of how it works.

    I want to see if a farm will sell or give some hens to me. I have been searching on this website and found a lot of people that wanted to do the same thing, but most were told to go to their animal shelter or humane society. We do have both near here, but they only work with dogs and cats. I was hoping to email a farm but I can't find any email addresses anywhere online. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks:)
