MLIV [my life is vegan]: Urgently needing foster or forever homes for 150 "retired" egg laying hens in ILLINOIS
Urgently needing foster or forever homes for 150 “retired” egg laying hens. They all appear healthy/in good condition, though they have slowed in their laying. They’re each about 2 years old, no adoption fee but will only go to vegetarian/vegan homes that promise never to slaughter or eat them.
The hens will preferably be adopted out in pairs as chickens are highly social animals but can be on their own if that is better for your house/building. Please be sure you can have a chicken in your building (or city, for that matter) before inquiring about adoption.
We have very limited time to find these birds homes and I’m spearheading a temporary shelter set-up and medical unit to assess all the animals. We will make sure the birds are healthy before giving them to you. These chickens are all mild-mannered and have been handled since birth by the small farm that “grew” them originally. They would make excellent backyard (or even in the house!) pets!!
In Chicago, where we currently have the birds, it is LEGAL to have them for pets.
Please email me if you live in Illinois or a nearby state (I live in Chicago with the birds), and you’re interested in adopting!! firstname.lastname@example.org
