Today We Welcomed 50 Hens from a Cockfighting Bust in Virginia Beach!

United Poultry Concerns is thrilled to share with you a few photos we took today as these hens were being unloaded into our predator-proof aviary yard where they will live happily for the rest of their lives. Our peafowl couldn’t wait for them to come out of the carriers! This afternoon everyone is sunbathing and dustbathing and getting to know each other. We are very grateful to Virginia Beach Animal Care & Adoption Center for making this adoption possible and for taking the cockfighters to court on felony charges.
