A charity which rescues and re-homes hundreds of animals each year is looking for homes for these ex-barn hens.

Animals In Need in Little Irchester would love to hear from anyone interested in re-homing some of the hens currently in its care.

Annie Marriott from the charity said: "We have beautiful ex-barn hens needing first class homes with plenty of space to scratch around and explore and a safe hen house to be put to bed at night."
