LuckyHens Rescue Wigan

A little 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 Uncles 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 5,120 + 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 Rescue as the animals mean so very much to us all as family.

We are known as "LuckyHens Rescue" and have been 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 , Nieces Shannon ,Katie & Amy, Sister-in-law Charlotte, Brother-in-law Darrell,and many of my close friends.

Love you all Alison x

We are also very excited to let you know we hope to be providing an alternative education Asdan site very shortly, involving animal welfare, growing fruit & veg, and teaching basic joinery skills, making chicken coops for the rescued hens, whilst encouraging the
community to be self-sustainable.

*The Chicken Coops will be on Sale at LuckyHens Rescue*

We are running on a very low budget, due to high overheads, and also we have many outgoings to ensure the Hens are cared for correctly..
We keep all the poorlies that we rescue and nurse them back to health, before we find them a "forever home"... medicines and medical supplies come at a very high cost, we are very grateful for every penny we receive in donations.

We are a "non profit C.I.C " we appreciate all donations.
