My gorgeous girl Rosie. Rescued from cage hell, she now has a forever home with me where she is free to stretch her wings, scratch in the dirt for worms and other tasty treats, have sandbaths and laze in the sun. Layers are slaughtered at around 18 months of age because they stop laying and are usually sold to the pet food industry. What a thought. Hens are intelligent and make awesome pets.
