Today, Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary will open its doors to 556 adoptable hens from a commercial egg farm in the San Joaquin Valley.
The hens will be available for adoption starting on Monday, July 22.
The hens are all two and a half year old White Leghorns. They are in excellent health and vaccinated. Most hens live to 10 years. They are generally active, becoming very friendly and curious with attention from adopters.
The hens will be adopted to homes that will care for the chicken as companion animals. Due to conditions in the commercial egg farm, the hens beaks are all clipped and they will need special accommodation for feeding.
