Lilac (left) was rescued in 2004 from a large battery cage operation and turns 9 this year. Daisy (right) was rescued in 2008 from a smaller battery cage operation.
Both of these hens were rescued from egg farms where they would have been slaughtered at 1.5 years of age. They have been de-beaked. Their brothers were killed the day they were born.
Lilac is blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other. Daisy helps her see. Lilac will lean into her and explore her environment using Daisy as a "safe zone".
