A YOUNGSTER turned animal rescuer to give battery farm chickens a new lease of life.
Sam Keenan, 12, was so incensed at hearing about the fate of the hens at their end of their productive lives that he set up a “rehabilitation unit” for around 50 birds at home.
Mum Helen and dad Russell converted a garden shed to make room for the chickens at their smallholding in Saughall Massie.
Sam has taken on full responsibility for cleaning and feeding his charges.
Helen said: “Sam loves all animals. He is a hard worker and hates anything that is cruel to animals.”
