A woman has been banned from keeping geese, ducks, hens and chickens after admitting not feeding her pets properly.
Fiona Christine Standring, 32, of Cross Street, Great Harwood, admitted one charge of causing unnecessary suffering to animals at Hyndburn Magistrates Court.
She pleaded guilty to failing to provide an adequate diet and suitable care for two geese, three ducks and three chickens with an adequate diet and suitable care.
Standring, who was prosecuted by the RSPCA, had been keeping the animals at St John’s Allotments in Great Harwood. She was given a two-year ban on keeping geese, ducks, hens and chickens and ordered to pay £600 to be paid at the rate of £50 per month.
The RSPCA said ducks, geese and chickens need plenty of fresh clean drinking water and there containers should be cleaned at least once a day.
They also need plenty of grass but require a balanced diet of protein, vitamins and minerals.
An RSPCA spokesman said: "Wherever possible we offer advice and assistance to improve animal welfare, including giving people time to make improvements to their standards of care.
"But this is not always possible or appropriate, and from our point of view, we must also consider if there is a benefit to animal welfare by prosecuting.
"In order to protect animals from future harm, our priority in many prosecution cases is for people who are convicted to be banned from keeping animals, as was the case in this instance."
