'Retirement' homes needed for hundreds of hens rescued by Little Irchester charity
Animals In Need needs help re-homing the 380 hens they have taken in
An animal rescue and re-homing charity is looking for new homes for 380 hens rescued from an organic free range farm.
Animals In Need in Little Irchester is appealing for help in finding homes for the large number of birds they have taken in.
Annie Marriott from the charity told the Northants Telegraph: "They have retired from their commercial life and need wonderful large new homes with gardens to explore.
"These ladies, approximately two-years-old, are used to having acres of paddocks to roam in so we will not rehome to tiny hutch-like cages."
If you think you may be a suitable retirement home for some of the rescued hens, email pictures of your hen accommodation to [email protected]
