    That is just horrible!! Why would they keep them all cooped up inside like that? Disgusting. [​IMG]

    I'm so glad you were able to rescue them and give them the home they deserve.[​IMG]

    You did well to rescue them. I would have been tempted to turn the owners in to AC. [​IMG]

    You are a good person for rescuing them. Those poor things. Makes me so angry that people will do that to animals.

    Quote:Absolutely!! congrats on rescuing them-but call animal control for them to rescue the others! Chickens in a room in a house??? Red flag Red flag!! Poor animals!

    You did a wonderful thing to save the poor chickens!! Please seriously think about either calling animal control or possibly seeing if there is an agency that could check out the safety of the home. The animals definitely deserve more humane treatment and the people who live there must have some major problems themselves if they are living in such a terrible situation. So glad the chickens are in a good home now!!
