if this is the correct place to post if not redirect the post thanks.

we i am about to rescue 3 ex cage laying hens and of course they are all bald, have had beaks cut back and are very skinny over all they will not be in good contition. i am building a very large coop at the side of our house so that new and old chickens have more room to well be chickens.

what i wanted to know is does anybody have any tips to get these chickens back to good health.. featherd and fattened up a little.

thanks for the help

Do a google search on chicken health and fattening see if there are any chicken forums and breeders and I am sure there are... ask for advice and see how you go. A couple of links below hope these help email a few of the breeders surely they could help you.
