If a person contacts a poultry farm and requests "spent" hens many will let
you have them for a small fee. If you can stomach the filthy featherless
emaciated birds you pick up, in time they will blossom and turn into "real"
chickens. Ours range happily over 3 acres of pasture and are protected from
foxes and coyotes with electric fence. The hens follow me around like dogs and
allow me to pick them up and pet them.
They seem to "know" they were rescued.

Thank you for your kind comments and telling us what you are doing to help the chickens. It's great.
The only problem we have is with giving any money to the factory farmers, who promote all this cruelty.
It would be far better to contact an organization such as United Poultry Concerns as they are always aware of rescue efforts.
In the Love of the Lord,
