Hello, our names are Rosie and Daisy and we are Isa Brown hens. Isa Browns are the most popular laying hen around. Daisy and I are lucky chickens as we are not stuck in a cage, we get to see the sunshine and scratch around in the soil and do all things that are really important to us chickens. But this wasn’t always the case for us.
I arrived here at my human’s home rather underweight and frightened. You see I had been rescued from a horrible battery cage into which I had been placed with several other hens, they too were very scared. We did not even have room to stretch our wings and our feet would get sore from standing on wire all day and night. We became stressed because we could not do any of the things that are important to us chickens, like laying our eggs in private on a lovely nest or dust bathing. Gee dust bathing is fun, you should try it some day.
Oh, it makes me shudder just to think of what life was like to never see the sun or feel the ground under my feet. But today my feathers have grown back as has my confidence. I love running up to my human friends to see what treats they have for me, everyone here is so kind to us chickens and they make us feel so special.
