A couple of weeks ago I rescued some ex-battery farm hens via the Battery Hen Welfare Trust. They were such sad little souls to start with, having spent the whole of their lives imprisoned in tiny cages. They had never seen the sky, grass, or even experienced wind/rain or sun...

This weekend whilst having a little wander around the garden they suddenly discovered the joys of sun-bathing - they each settled down in a sunny spot and stretched out their very sparse wing feathers and basked in the lovely spring warmth...

I'll post more pics as they gradually regain their feathers!
