Animal Care is set to rescue 3000 hens from a farm and is seeking homes for the birds.

They said it is a very big task but they are determined to help as many as they can.

If you think you can help with two or 20 hens please send your contact information and the number of hens you can help to Animal Care via private message or send your name and phone number to abi@animalcare-lancaster.co.uk.

Once a date and time is arranged Animal Care will contact you to collect your hens from Animal Care (this is very likely to be the last week of July between 2pm-5pm).

A donation of £2 is asked for each hen.

Animal Care based on Blea Tarn Road, Lancaster, said: “Please be aware these hens have been in battery farm conditions so will need TLC and possibly mite treatment.
