I seem to be someone who always needs a project. The latest one? Chickens. We have decided to rescue some battery hens. Now, my mild fear of flappy birds aside I’m actually quite egg-cited about it. (Sorry). We literally decided this last night and I am fully running with it. I have done extensive Google based… Read More Rescuing Ex-Battery Hens: Where do I even start?
