    As an aside, the charge for a hen from these 3 rehoming groups seems to be from 2.50 - 5. I don't know what the difference is between them.

    If you have a commercial egg producer nearby, you may be able to buy a few direct from them. Just another option to give these chooks a chance to see out their days in comfort.

    Go on, everyone should have a chook or three

    Thanks. I've got them working now...

    What condition are they normally in? My 2.5 year old daughter is pretty tough but i wouldn't want to commit to taking some on if they would be distressing for her to look at / live with. (Crikey i sound overly protective!)

    I've never had any, Stan. I'm sure some here have though.
