Battery Hen Rescue

Posted by Jon in Chickens, News on Saturday 21/05/2011 21:49 +01:00.

This week we have taken on a further 120 ex-battery hens that would otherwise be slaughtered. The farm in Norfolk where we fetched them from, was emptying their sheds, replacing 20,000 birds with young hens, to keep the egg yield high.

We couldn’t rescue all 20,000 hens that are probably only around 18 months old, but we have taken on 120, along with other rescue centres. Over the next few weeks we’ll be getting these hens on to their new homes.

Our waiting list is not full, so if you want some hens and have a large, fox prof run then contact us.
