An old lady we know is looking for some ex bat hens to replenish he flock. She suddenly lost a number of hens and has customers for her eggs. She thinks that ex bats would be producing large eggs quicker than other methods. Her system is completely free range. Do any of you lads, know where we may get some?

Little hill animal rescue do a "rescue run" every few months - they just did one in May so not sure when the next one is due but it may be worth checking out their website http://littlehillanimalrescue.ie

A very worthwhile thing to do. People who keep hens in batteries are, in my opinion,  a disgrace.  There are other ways to make a living.
