Could you give a hen a home?

By Advertiser Reporter

A charity that helps thousands of hens that would otherwise be killed is seeking homes for them in the Newark area.

The British Hen Welfare Trust was set up to rehome hens that are no longer wanted once they are 18 months-old and past their egg-laying peak.

The charity is holding rehoming sessions across Nottinghamshire in the new year, including one in Newark on Saturday.

The co-ordinator for Nottinghamshire, Samantha Wortley, wants to hear from anyone with a bit of space in their back garden.

“You will even get a few eggs in return for saving their lives,” she said.

“They become part of the family, so if you are able to help please call.”

A total of 59,000 hens were rehomed last year and it is hoped to help a similar number this year. Anyone interested should register their details at www.bhwt.org.uk and then call 01884 860084 to speak to the charity’s rehoming team.
