Home needed for Falmouth charity chickens. Can you help?

First published in News

Falmouth’s Nicola Congdon who volunteers and raises money for an orphanage in South Africa is appealing for help in finding alternative accommodation for her 30 chickens and ducks which are facing imminent eviction from their current home.

The roosters and hens have been kept on land at Treliever, but Nicola has been told she will have to remove them by the end of February as the land owner has plans to redevelop the site.

She is hoping someone with some spare land will come to her rescue. She says she only needs a plot of about 20 metres and is willing to pay rent.

“I have been looking, but have been unable to find anywhere,” said Nicola. “I will have to sell the birds if I can’t find somewhere else to house them.”

The hens have become an important source of funding for the Duncan Village Aids Orphanage. “I sell all the eggs that they lay every day and the money raised in one week will feed the children at the orphanage for a day,” said Nicola. “It costs £30 a day to feed the children.” Nicola is looking for somewhere within a five mile radius of Falmouth. Anyone who thinks they may be able to help should call Nicola on 0788 0526548.
