NOVEMBER 2021 - we have two hens looking for a home at the moment. They are a bonded pair. One has a limp and will always have it. They would make great pets as "starter hens" for a first time adopter but would not do well in an existing flock.
If you are looking for a rewarding and joyous experience then these hens are for you! Can you offer a long term loving home to ex-battery hens?
We are a genuine welfare group, we are NOT poultry breeders or dealers. We work one on one with each family to ensure the best possible outcome for both the hens and the adoptive family.
The Battery Hen Adoption Project was started in Brisbane, Queensland twelve years ago to give ex-battery chickens a second chance at life. We look for long term loving homes throughout South East Queensland where the rescued hens can live a happy life after being in a battery cage.
The hens quickly adjust to life outside the cage and are acting like "normal" chickens within a day. They rarely jump or fly, so are easier to contain than other hens, and tend to be much quieter vocally as well.
Ex-battery hens make wonderful pets and bond very quickly with their adoptive family. They love to be with people and will follow you everywhere, including inside the house if you let them!
Over the past decade there have been so many lives changed for the better, not only hens lives but adopters lives too! We believe that adopting hens, or bringing any new animal into your home, is a major decision which is why we work directly with each adoptive family.
Can you give ex-battery hens a second chance at life?
