I've only joined this site today and just wanted to say hello!!
I have 3 rescue cats, Sophie, Wii - Cat and Marley, had Sophie for 17 years now. Just waiting on arrival of 2 ferral cats from cats protection in the next week or so. Also have 2 rescue dogs, Murphy and Bambi who are amazing! We own a riding centre so have also had a few rescue ponies over the years. Lucky enough to have lots of land and have just started keeping chickens - Got 3 black rock hens 6 months ago and 3 Isa Browns in September. Getting 3 Sussex hens and 3 Campbell ducks this Sunday for my christmas - cannot wait! all for eggs and pets only. Would like to rescue some battery hens come springtime when it's warmer outside - so if any of you good people could give me some advice as to how to go about this would be much appreciated. Got lots of land for them to free range in and huts with enclosed pens to keep them safe from foxes at night. Look forward to talking to some like minded people!

:hello: and a very warm :catwelcome: from me too. Here's the link vicky was on about :supersmile: viewforum.php?f=87 (http://forum.animallifelineuk.org/viewforum.php?f=87) I have 3 battery hens, got mine in October and I really wouldn't be without them. I know aot of people who are looking for ex battery hens in Ayrshire. I'm sure one of them was on about doing a rescue and trying to set up a pick up point there. If I hear anything I'll let you know. :DD
