SO FAR WE HAVE REHOMED HENS

Rehome Hens

COVID-19 AND REHOMING
Thank you to everyone who has contacted us asking when we will be in a position to start rehoming again. Currently all new registrations are on hold in order to cope with the volume of enquiries, but we will open registrations again w/c 1st June.

In the meantime, we are working closely with our volunteer teams and farmers to ensure the safest and most efficient way to start up again adhering to government guidelines and social distancing regulations. We have learned valuable lessons from two authorised hen collections undertaken during lockdown in Cornwall and Scotland, and were able to rehome hens on welfare grounds.

Please keep checking our website and social media posts for updated information. We will be getting our hands on hens again soon, and whilst they’re currently waiting patiently in their cages, they are so looking forward to starting a new life in your back garden…

Thanks for your patience, and support. We couldn’t do what we do without you.

We find caring homes for thousands of commercial laying hens, like Angel and Ginger pictured above, every year. Without us, these lovely girls would otherwise be destined for slaughter. We have hen collection points all over the country and rehomings take place on a regular basis. To find the one nearest to you just click here. It is an Animal & Plant Health Agency requirement that all hens are traceable and we therefore require full contact details of rehomers.  We do not make a charge for the hens, but we do ask for a donation to cover what we pay the farmers, vet fees, fuel, phone bills, trailers, equipment and feed. Donations also support our ongoing work in campaigning for a free-range future for all hens. Most people are kind enough to give around £5 per hen.
