Here’s something new for me.
It’s hard to escape the fact that due to their previous treatment, ex-battery hens are prone to health problems.
Quite a few people have asked me what I do to keep an eye on my girls’ health and so I thought I’d talk you through my weekly checks. In my experience, chickens go from pretending they’re OK to being poorly very quickly. But, with some routine care, you can get to know your hens better and hopefully spot any problems earlier.
Warning, disclaimer coming. I’m not a vet – I’m just someone who is very passionate about rescuing these lovely animals. If you’re at all worried about a chicken, please seek veterinary advice.
I hope it helps! (And if not, at least Debs got to star in her very own video, which was on her freedom bucket list).
