just reserved 12 hens that are being rehomed from a free range farm.Pick up on December 3rd.
Its been a very long time since i rescued any,my first from free range so im hoping they wont be so shabby as the others ive had in the past.

Which organisation is that with?
I've not heard of rehoming free range ones, at least they may be more used to going out, though don't count on it. I saw a "free range" facility - 1000s of birds inside a big barn area (with food, water, scratching etc), a door to a field outside which was open, but only about 20 birds outside!
Never forget that life is a finite resource.

Experience is something you gain just after you needed it most.

I have had ex free range birds, they are not bad, I have had white ones as well as the Warren type. They wern't as frilendly as the caged ones tho.
It never worries me when I get a little lost, all I do is change where I'm going

They are from "Fresh start for hens"
I too have seen these free range farms so i am well aware of how they have been kept.

Ah, lucky girls. I love my ex-batts. I'm holding off on re-homing any more are we're away for a month soon so I'll get more when I get back.
If they can be taught to hate, they can be taught to love.
