Pne of my animal welfare contacts has just emailed this to me so I have no further details but if you're interested and can help please contact the action group directly on the number/address below.

Can you offer a home to any hens? Brighton Animal Action will be rehoming "end of lay" hens from Sussex on the week commencing 14th February. Thise who have no offer of a home will go to slaughter at the beginning of next week.

Please spread the word and contact 01273 885750 or [email protected] if you can help save some of these poor creatures.

sorry to far away to help but bumping for you

Thank you racmac. At the same time Little Hen Rescue will have 1000 hens to rehome, which can be collected from either Norwich or Cambridge.

I just wish some of them could come to me, hens are dear little souls. Sadly my Landlord, who's kind enough to allow me to own 3 dogs, just wouldn't stretch to permitting hens too.

Too far away :(

I have some ex-batts already and they are positively delightful - far friendlier than my posh pure-breed girls.

Bumping for you.

Managed to convince dh that we can take on a few more girls. Will have a look at the Norwich rescue

We will see what happens. I haven't had a reply

Wish I could help, but I live too far away (in the North East) i also think my DP might move out in protest as I already have 12 ladies!! If you could post this appeal on the Omlet Forums, the 'Crazy Chicken People' will usually come up trumps for you. Good Luck!!
