Subject: Hen Placement


Animal Place recently accepted 45 hens from a cage-free egg laying operation.
The hens are commercial brown layers and are approximately 2 years old. They
have been de-beaked, so will require some specialized feeding care.

The hens are friendly, all things considered, and are looking for new homes.

There are 23 hens available for adoption. Adopters will need to fill out an
adoption application and there is a suggested $5 donation per chicken to help
offset the extra care and feed they require at the sanctuary.

If you are interested in adopting some of these hens or know someone who is,
please contact Marji Beach at [email protected]. Hens will only be adopted
into companion homes.

Please remember, if you know anyone looking for chickens to adopt, please
consider your local shelter or a sanctuary like Animal Place before buying.
Hatcheries are sad places where adult birds are kept in puppy mill style
housing and where day-old, sensitive birds are sent through the postal service.
Rooster chicks are used as packing material, so even ordering "hens" may result
in a few roosters (who are generally tossed out or euthanized at shelters).
Contact us first to see if we can find needy chickens for placement before
buying!
