PRESS RELEASE – May 2015
Meet Barbs, queen of her flock who loves ‘Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon’. The British Hen Welfare Trust is looking for kind-hearted members of the public to offer more hens like Barbs a sunny summer start to their well-deserved retirement.
The national charity, which celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year, is best known for its pioneering work in re-homing commercial laying hens destined for slaughter with over 460,000 hens re-homed since it started in 2005.
A pop-up Hen Collection will be held in Dorset on 14th June and hundreds of ex laying hens just like Barbs will be hoping for a second chance in life.
Local Co-ordinator, Jane Cardell, explains, “These endearing hens make amazing pets and soon adapt to family life; delicious eggs are an added bonus, they will be the best you have ever tasted! If you haven’t adopted hens before, it’s incredibly rewarding and the feel-good factor in saving their lives is simply unbeatable.”
The charity asks for a donation for the hens and if you would like to adopt some please call Hen Central 01884 860084 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
