Thelma was originally a battery hen, living on an egg farm. When she reached the age of two she was rescued by a lady alongside several of her friends and siblings. Several years passed and sadly Thelma's friends passed on until she was on her own. Her owner asked if we could take Thelma in.
Thelma walks with an obvious limp, one leg having been broken at a time and having never been set or healed properly, leaving it twisted.
Thelma lived for a couple of years alongside some of our older hens but as she got older her leg gave her more issues and she had to be seperated from the others to stop them from knocking her over.
Thelma moved into the Cabin at night and spent her days in the garden.
