Awww, poor skanky rescue hens

Having sold some spare eggs to friends Hermione had finally saved enough to go and buy an Orprington hen today. We went along to a place we hadn't been to before. I must say I was shocked by the conditions - so much so that I felt compelled to rescue all I could and we came away with three not one. Just look at them, feathers matted with poo and stuff. I could cry for them and only wish we could help more. They're now tucked up in their new digs - a roomy hen house all of their own, and tomorrow they will hopefully enjoy strutting their stuff round the garden. Poor little things were really wary of the grass when we brought them home - never seen it before. Hopefully I'll be able to update with pictures of happy fluffy hens within a few weeks. Just a point to note, these hens are not battery rescue, they actually came from what many would consider to be 'free range' conditions. So sad.
