Fresh Start for Hens look to rehome 5,000 hens

By on June 12, 2019

Charity Fresh Start for Hens are looking to rehome 5,700 hens in Cheshire on 22nd June 2019.

Macs Farm in Sussex is looking to relocate their hens as they are not able to sell the eggs they produce in the right quantities. The hens can be collected from Crewe.

FSFH ask for a minimum donation of £2.50 per hen to cover costs of fuel, feed and expenses in rehoming.

Sarah Thornton, from FSFH said: “The hens are collected from the farms by a team of volunteers early in the morning. They are then driven to collection points throughout the UK and rehomed the same day, these collection points are also run by volunteers.”

Sarah added: “They ask for pictures of your chicken coop, run and free-range area so that they know they are going to good retirement homes.”
