Our chicken/rooster group is a mix of Heirloom breeds and factory farm egg-laying hens. Most Leghorns are genetically bred to lay over 300 eggs in one year and are considered “spent” and sent to slaughter. They suffer from loss of calcium and broken bones due to their high egg output. In nature, normal production would be one to two clutches of about 20 eggs per year. We have one giant rooster who slipped through the system and was placed in a battery cage at a factory farm. Once he was noticed, he was saved along with some Leghorns. Our birds are a big group of about twenty, and they all enjoy hanging out and exploring together while getting treats and attention!
