Congratulations on making the decision to give some rescue ex-battery chickens another chance at life, rescue hens are so rewarding to keep and with love and care you will see them blossom over the next few months.

Your hens will also be deficient in lots of nutrients that they need, they are egg machines and as such they will have spent the last 12-18months of their lives pumping out eggs, battery hens should lay well for about another 3-5 years, however, in the environment they have been in their natural sources of protein, iron, calcium and vitamin D will be drained.

By using the lovely products included, which have been either handmade or personally selected by our chicken experts, you will be able to help your new hens on their way to a full recovery. There are some wonderful aids in this rescue pack that will replenish lost nutrients, build trust and confidence and also help promote emotional calmness.

“I can’t wait to purchase hens through Pipinchick in the new year!”

"Brilliant service, great products with neatly designed packaging with direct instructions on the labelling. I am treating a (formerly) paralyzed chicken with severe nutritional wry neck successfully with guidance from the Pipinchick website. Products arrived on 48hr delivery, I can't wait to purchase hens through Pipinchick in the new year!"

“Pipinchick couldn’t have been more helpful”

Pipinchick couldn't have been more helpful, delivering our two friendly hens and some supplies we couldn't get hold of elsewhere. The birds have kept us entertained - and supplied with eggs - all summer long. If you are lucky enough to have a small garden I'd recommend a few chickens for everyone.
