At Last! Rose Grows Feathers!

Rose October 2009

Well, it’s finally happened. Rose, one of our lovely ex battery hens has at long last started to regrow her feathers. After a few false starts of feather regrowth, and spending last winter quite naked, our lovely little chicken looks beautiful again. The best thing about this is she has gone off lay, Rose is notorious for laying monster size eggs which worry me stupid and I do fear that this will finish her off eventually.

She has been out of the battery cage now for 18 months (along with 5 others) which is fantastic, even longer than I had hoped for. Bald or clothed I love her just the same, im just so pleased to see her looking so healthy and happy. Long may her freedom continue.
