A bit about us...
We devote all our time & energy bringing awareness in the Wigan and surrounding areas about the welfare of laying hens and encourage people into becoming more self sufficient to help the local community.
I have always been aware of poor hens in cages, as I spent a lot of my younger years on my Uncle's farm where battery hens were kept & remember feeling helpless.
There was no rescue centre in this area, so being in the fortunate position of having the space, I thought I would rescue a few hens from a battery farm to keep for myself. I have since re-homed over 25,000+ hens & intend to keep on to free as many "girls" as i can, so much so, we sold our home and currently living on the farm in a caravan, to ensure we could fund the rescue until we learn how to go about applying for help/funding as our first love is the animals here at the rescue, who mean so very much to us all as family.
We are now known as "LuckyHens Rescue " and have been since est since 2009, it hasn't been easy, and I couldn't of done this without the support of my wonderful Husband Dane, Son Adam Daughter Amber , Niece Shannon,and many of our close friends, Love you all ... Alison x
So far we have saved over 25,000 hens from slaughter, and re-homed them as pets. We have also saved many other animals including horses, Brian & Alan , Sarah, Gertrude & Jill the old ewes, Elvis & Lulu the pigs, 3 cocketiels, 5 ducks, a Quail and don't forget the Turkeys!
