Hatching Eggs can be a fantastic experience and it’s lovely to see an ex-bat sitting on a clutch of eggs doing what comes naturally. However it is important to remember that inevitably 50% of eggs hatched will be boys!
Here at Hen Central we take on average 6 calls a day asking for help from people who have un-wittingly hatched a flock of cockerels and are now unable to find them all homes. Sadly we are unable to help, as we do not have a permanent re-homing centre. We would suggest that you advertise your cockerels through local animal sanctuary, feed merchants, vets, or as a last resort try the RSPCA.
If you would like to ask Gaynor a hen health question please email email@example.com or call Hen Central on 01884 860084. To support our Advice Line we ask for a nominal donation to help fund this service, so that we can continue to help your hens.
