    Hey I was just reading a post about rescued battery hens. Not knowing what a battery hen was I googled it and its messed up. I actually watch that show: How It Made on tv and they had one on eggs and was ****** off while watching it. My question is does anyone know what hatcherys those commercial egg producers get there hens? I know its gonna be a large hatchery like Ideal. Reason why I am interested in knowing is I am going to order some chicks soon and want to make sure I am not supporting a hatchery who sells to there egg producers. I want to spend my money to support a hatchery or person who actually cares for animals and not just thinking they can make a Easy million by selling to those bastards
