Can you re-home a hen?
DUCHY College Rosewarne is acting as a collection point for battery hens which need rehoming before Christmas.
There are a number of battery hens needing new homes before the festive period or they will be slaughtered.
Head Animal Management Technician, Laura Fallow explained: “We are working closely with the British Hen Welfare Trust and anyone that can help will be giving a chicken a second lease of life which is what we want. They are amazing layers and with a bit of tender love and care make great pets. If anyone already has some hens and could house a few more that would be great.”
There is a £2 contribution per hen if anyone is interested please contact Laura on 07771 371500 or email email@example.com by Thursday 15th December.
