British Hen Welfare Trust hope to rehome 400 hens in Nottinghamshire with 200 being adopted in Newark on Sunday
Hundreds of hens are hoping to start 2020 in the best way possible — by finding homes as pets.
Four hundred hens are waiting for new homes through the British Hen Welfare Trust. A total of 200 will be rehomed in Newark on Sunday.
Once they reach 18 months old, hens are no longer considered commercially viable so would be sent to slaughter if it were not for the charity’s lifesaving work.
Sam Wortley, Nottinghamshire co-ordinator, said: “We are really hoping to get 2020 off to a fantastic start by finding homes for all 400 hens in Nottinghamshire.
"Not only will you get the feelgood factor from knowing you have saved lives, but you will also be rewarded with a flock of a funny, inquisitive, life-enriching feathered friends to enjoy.”
To rehome hens, pre-register at www.bhwt.org.uk and then call 01884 860084 to complete the booking.
