I ended up at Edgar’s Mission site (re: my last post) because i received an email asking for help for a load of ex-battery hens that they’ve recently rescued. If you live in Victoria and are able/wanting to take on a chicken or two, check out their page for more info. Perhaps you can leave a donation. Here’s a brief snippet from their page:
Chicken Run – Australia’s Largest Farm Animal Rescue is underway! It begun on Wednesday July 3rd with a call from a battery cage chicken farmer who wants out, but doesn’t want the hens to be killed. Every day we head down to rescue as many as possible but we need your help! This is an enormous operation, but you can be involved by adopting a hen, volunteering at Edgar’s Mission or making a donation to help us continue. We wish to sincerely thank everyone who is assisting so selflessly to make this possible.
