Could you give a chicken a new home?

Hey everyone,

I don't know if you all know but I recently started keeping chickens in my back garden, and havent regretted it- as they are great fun!

However I have just received the email below and wanted to spread the word to see if I could help save some battery hens from slaughter- perhaps you or someone you know might be able to help by giving them a new home.

If you think you might know someone just forward this and the email below on to them- any questions just ask!

>> Hello lovely people,I needed to get your attention - and quick!!
Little Hen Rescue are about to attempt the trying to rehome 10,000 hens in less than 2 months....
Yes, 10,000 hens in 2 months.....
As some of you may know, we have been working hard to empty a Norfolk battery farm for the last 9 months or so.

The girls in these barns have been in quite a frightful state and we have given thousands of them the chance of a new life.
However, this farm is now closing and going into something different (not livestock) BUT there is approximately 10,000 girls left in there. The farmer has the slaughterman booked for the 29th June. Any girls not rescued by then will go to slaughter, with no if's or buts and no second chances.
So.........Here's your opportunity to help!

Please you lovely lot, this is your chance to help rehome some of these beautiful girls. I really do believe that we can pull together and get these girls out.

If anyone can take some hens and find them safe homes, please get in contact with Little Hen Rescue.

(NB Try ebay for a cheap hen coop)
Hens cost next to nothing to feed, provide you with entertainment and fresh eggs!
