Family, marriage, womanhood, a simple life at home

We have rescued and added to our coop a few battery hens which otherwise would have been disposed of. Well, the term battery hens seems to fit remarkably well, as the poor chickens are very battered. It's really startling to see the difference between our home-grown, spoiled-rotten, glossy-feathered birds and those poor hens who have perhaps never seen daylight.
They are still laying well enough, however, and hopefully their condition will improve in our nice big coop and later in the yard.
I hope more people will become aware of the cruelty that involves obtaining battery-raised eggs.
