POULTRY AS PETS

Do you love eating eggs.

But, never buy eggs.

Because of the way commercial hens are treated.


HENS AS PETS

POULTRY NEED FOOD, WATER, SHELTER, SPACE, COMPANY, . .


    Hens are generally easier to look after than ducks. 

    Hens live about 9 years and ducks about 20 years. 

    If you want birds for pets 
then you could get yourself a couple of hens or bantams, 
and let them loose in your back yard, 
rather than lock some poor canary or budgerigar up in some little cage.

EGGS

    If you want pure bred birds for eggs then buy top quality 
White Leghorn, Black Australorpe, Rhode Island Red hens 
or Khaki Campbell ducks. 

    Or, provide a good home for rescued battery hens.

    They can lay 300 eggs per year when they are young. 
    And, fewer but larger eggs as they get older.
