The whole reason for the selfsufficientish website was to offer a place where anyone can ask, HOW DO I...? So who knows why it has taken us so long to have a HOW DO I? section, but here it is. So if you want to know how to do anything selfsufficientish then here is the place to ask.

My mum keeps chickens and is getting a couple more this week. She is having hens who are evictees from a battery farm - apparently, when they lay fewer than 6 eggs a week they are regarded as being used-up, and are slaughtered. She says they're a bit traumatised and need to re-learn how to be a chicken, but she thinks they will settle and work out fine. They cost £2.50 each. If you're still interested i can ask for contact details. Oh, i think there come from birmingham. If that's too far there're probably farms in your area that'd do the same thing.

Two and a half quid is a lot for an ex-batt.Round here you can buy yearling hens(really 18 months old) from a ommercial FR flock for a quid a piece.If you want 24 week POL hens check out Cyril Bason in Craven Arms they'll deliver to you.
