Happy 300th Chicken Rescuer!

The Chicken Rescue Network is a wee project I set up about 18 months ago after we had re-homed some ex battery hens from the SPCA. It’s just clicked over the 300 member mark and we have re-homed more than 400 chickens, roosters (and the odd duck).

It’s a very small drop in the ocean compared to the millions of chickens raised and kept in terrible conditions in NZ but it’s a start.

I would love to see battery hens as an election issue this year, but with food prices going up, I don’t fancy our chances of getting more people to pay more for ethically produced eggs.
