An animal charity is holding a ‘pop-up’ re-homing day in St Helens for hundreds of ex-commerical laying hens.
If you are looking for love this February, or just want to form new friendships then local Co-ordinator for the charity, Adele Hall, explains: “These hens may look a little tatty when they first arrive, but with love they will soon flourish, and you will wonder how you ever lived without them!
Adopting our hens opens up the opportunity for new friendships too with plenty of chicken chat with like-minded people?”
The charity has found homes for over 500,000 hens since hatching in 2005 and as well as saving commercial hens from slaughter, the charity also educates the public on how they can make a difference to hen welfare through their shopping basket and eating habits.
If you could offer a few of the charity’s hens a loving and long-lasting free range home, please call the re-homing team at Hen Central on 01884 860084, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although the feel-good factor of saving these hens from slaughter comes free of charge, the charity does requests a small donation of typically £4 - 5 a hen to cover its costs.
If you are unable to re-home our hens, but are keen to support the work of the charity, please contact our Fundraising Team Xiomara.Pattison@bhwt.co.uk or visit our website for ways to get involved at www.bhwt.org.uk/topics/fundraising
