Homes Needeed for

Ex-Battery Hens

Battery hens are only kept until they are about 1 year old, then they are killed. We have been given the opportunity to re-home some of these hens.

If you would like to home some of these lovely hens, please phone us on 01963 32279 or email us at

We are asking that if you home some of these hens that you give a donation to the rescue.
