Ex-Battery Hens

Status: unavailable

Ex-battery hens, or ex-commercial layers, would normally be put into the food chain at around 60-70 weeks old. So if you are thinking about getting some POL hens it might be worth wild getting one or two ex-battery hens as well! Not only will you be saving the lives of the hens they will also make a great addition to the family.

Egg wise, you will get eggs off your new hens for the first few days, but they slow down laying for a bit while they get used to their new surroundings. 

The appearance of the hens does vary from hen to hen, some may have more feathers than the other.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.

Here is an egg from the ex-bats on the first day of getting ready to be re-homed.
