Homes needed for ex-batts

Item copied from Facebook group that is seeking homes for 5,000 ex-battery hens to be adopted as pets.

Can anybody rescue some laying hens ??????

There's a local farm getting rid of 5000 laying hens !!!!!!!!!!!!!

The farmers are commercial egg producers so they only keep the hens for 12 months and then they go to slaughter unless they can find them a happy home.

The farmer there is really nice and is more than happy for you to go and get 2 or 3 or as many as you want, he really doesn't want them to end up as pie filling, he'd rather them find a happy home - but you need to act quick as they are going for slaughter on Thursday 29th October

John Terry, Oak Tree Farm, Stoke Golding Lane, Higham On The Hill, Near Nuneaton, Warwickshire CV13 6ES

He’s asking for £2.50 per bird and as these bird will still continue laying for a couple of years they will more than pay for themselves

The farm will be opened up for you to collect the birds on

Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th October 2015 and
Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th October 2015
Only between the hours of 9am – 5pm

No need to book you can just turn up to collect but PLEASE take your own box or carrier

Please feel free to share if you know anyone who may be interested, if you can't share then you can copy and paste the text
