Rescue Hens

Recommended Posts

Last week we had a phone call from a neighbour - could we take some ex-bats and give them a good home? Of course I said "yes".


They are in the eglu and well away from the noisy, self opinionated madams with the bad attitude who live in the cube. The new three are so quiet and timid it makes me want to weep. One of them only comes out of the eglu to eat and drink then goes straight back in as if she is agrophobic.


My daughter has called them Molly, Polly and Dolly as we can't tell them apart.


The place where we got them has several thousand bats but they keep a dozen or so free rangers for household eggs as "free range taste so much nicer" .... that tells you something doesn't it?

Molly, Polly and Dolly ... what a cute sounding trio. Well done for rescuing them. :D

I took on 2 new ex-batts in November and worried as one in particular appeared terrified of coming out of the hen house. Needless to say, she is now one of the gang and seems very happy.

Sometimes you just have to let them get on with it. Don't wory too much.
