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. She uses her friend Daisy as a seeing eye chicken, so she can explore her environment safely.
