A Vacaville animal sanctuary will be holding adoptions events Friday and Saturday to find homes for 1,800 rescued chickens.

The egg-laying hens are coming from a Chico egg farm that is closing. The sanctuary, known as Animal Place, says the Sacramento SPCA is helping but add that the rescue can only happen if people adopt the chickens.

The adoption events will be at the Western Ranch & Pet Supply in Vacaville Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and again on Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
