We have 2 Battery Chickens

On 10th May we collected two battery chickens, we have named them Charlie and Lola, as they are Arthur's chickens we thought we would name them after one of his favouirite cantoons. They are the same type as lily, our other chicken so its a real shock to see them against Lily.

This is Lola, she spent most of her first day in her new home inside. She finally came out on Monday morning.

This is Charlie, she spent most of her first day just sitting on the grass. I think she must have been sitting down for atleast 5 hours and did not move.

Hi :) I have just bought 3 battery chickens. They are very badly pecked - their tail and chest feathers are almost completely gone. Did you find that the bare patches of their skin regrew with feathers?? Many thanks if you reply :)

Hi Ashlee,
Yes the bare patches of their skin regrew with feathers after a week weeks.
