Spring is a happy time for our birds. Ironically, spring also puts a huge amount of stress on the hens, especially our older hens. As the days grow longer, their bodies are compelled to make more eggs which stresses their bodies greatly. You can help.

Our wonderful vet has given us a discount to treat these hens for as litle as $100 for each hen. Right now we are asking for help for ten hens. You can help get these sweet hens what they need to live happy and healthy with your donation toward their medical care.

Danzig's Roost saved 398 "spent" laying hens two years ago.  The hens were already older and tired from laying so many eggs when we rescued them.  It's been a few years and their little bodies are trying to fall apart too soon.  Many people do not know that laying an egg a day is unnatural and detrimental to their health.  Now that they're older, they're in desperate need of help to stay strong enough to continue living.

Many hens suffer from prolapses, which is when their insides pop out of their vent from straining so hard to lay eggs.  Many begin to lay eggs inside their own bodies and some develop nasty infections as the result of their older bodies carrying the burden to lay so many eggs for so long.

What we can do to help them is provide them with hormonal treatment that stops them from laying for a period of time. This allows the hens to live their lives here, free of pain and complications of egg laying.
