We have rescued 80 ex-battery chickens this week, taking our total for the year to over 400. These poor girls live an awful life, in extremely cramped cages, each hen has no more space than an A4 piece of paper.

The flock is usually sent for slaughter at 12 to 18 months and replaced with new hens to keep egg production as high as possible. We rescue some from slaughter and find them life-long loving home.

If you can offer 2 or more hens a home, please get in touch while we have some and give a hen a happy home for Christmas.
