Hi,<br><br>
I think its unlikely that I will be in a situation to provide a home for any chickens by next April, but I know a couple of people who it might be worth me mentioning it to.<br><br>
Perhaps you could provide some more information about what you are looking for:<br><br>
How much space do the rehomed chickens require?<br><br>
What kind of shelter?<br><br>
How much would it cost to keep / feed them etc.?<br><br>
Are they likely to require expensive vet trips as a result of being ex-battery animals?<br><br>
Will they need to be picked up from Brighton and if so what is an appropriate way to transport a chicken (also, what kind of boxes are you looking for as the other part of your request?)<br><br>
How old will the rescued chickens be, and how long is their predicted life span once rehomed? How long will they normally continue to lay eggs in the new home? (I realise you cant guarantee this, but some kind of guidance about what is 'normal' would be helpful).<br><br><br><br>
Good Luck with what you're trying to do.

I'm assuming they mean Brighton here in the UK. I wish I could help, I love chickens but I'm not allowed to keep them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

Is a chicken farm going out of business, and that's how you ended up with an opportunity to "legally liberate" the chickens? Or are they selling off a bunch of chickens to make room for something else?<br><br><br><br>
I don't get it.

skylark - they're collecting chickens whose factory farm defined "productivity time" has ended but who will still lay, just less frequently, on agreement with the farmer.

well, I had a quick talk about it with my dad but we can't really give a home to any chickens. I don'ty think it's legal in our garden and I'd be moving out soon after for University anyway; he doesn't want to be left with them. I will ask anyone I think is likely to provide them with a home though. Provided I pass my driving test I may be able to help transport them though. At least I'd be helping a little.<br><br><br><br>
ETA: I've noticed it wants people who can drive large vehicles, so that would be not me. But maybe I would be able to offer to take one or two to private homes that are taking them in but can't travel the distance. I don't know.
