Over the years I've "rescued" ex-battery hens. They tend to be kept for their first year (maximum laying period) then just destroyed. With a little tlc they will continue to lay most days for years.

Even bog-standard hens develop real characters after a short time. Great time wasters. You don't need a big area to keep them in either. Oodles of REAL eggs on tap. Flog the surplus to your neighbours, collegues etc.

Plenty of bumf on internet or library on how to start. Easy peasy!

Go for 4 or 6 to start with. 200+ may be a bit much for your average back garden though !

Help out if you can.
