Lucky 13 Chickens rescued after falling from lorry in Hailsham

WRAS Rescuer Tony Neads has rescued 13 chickens from a garden in Chiddingly near Hailsham, East Sussex. The chickens were seen to fall off a lorry going to slaughter. These were certainly not an unlucky 13 chickens!

WRAS had been contacted by a lady who had found numerous chickens in her garden since yesterday after she witnessed them falling from a lorry, thought to be heading for slaughter. WRAS stepped in after no one else seemed interested in helping and Sussex Horse Rescue kindly agreed to take the chickens on at their Sanctuary in Uckfield.

East Sussex WRAS does not normally get involved in these rescues, but no one else wanted to help. Since it had been a quiet day, we decided we would try and help.
