PRESS RELEASE – May 2015
Royally good home needed for Charlotte, Elizabeth & Diana?
Charlotte, Elizabeth and Diana came out of their colony farm on May 2nd, the same day the nation welcomed the latest addition to the Royal family. These 3 plucky ex-colony girls are looking for a ‘royally’ good home, but a Peckingham Palace is not required!
Hen welfare charity, the British Hen Welfare Trust (BHWT) is holding a pop up Hen Collection in Dorset on 23rd May and hopes to find loving homes for hundreds of ex colony laying hens just like Charlotte, Elizabeth and Diana. Jane Cardell, Dorset co-ordinator for the BHWT explains, “These girls will make amazing pets, giving so much back with their friendly and inquisitive natures, not to mention eggs. If you haven’t adopted hens before, it’s incredibly rewarding to give them a second chance in life, and I’d highly recommend it.”
The charity also has hens available now in Chulmleigh and South Zeale for collection by appointment only.
PLEASE NOTE hens need to be reserved in advance of the Hen Collections. If you have a little more room in your chicken coop for a few hens please call Hen Central 01884 860084 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. A donation of £5 per hen is requested to cover costs and help save more hens from slaughter!
There is always something eggciting happening at the charity, to find out more search for the BHWT on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and/or Linkedin.
