British Hen Welfare Trust Re-homing Day 12/11/2017

A very rewarding day today helping at the British Hen Welfare Trust re-homing at Overton. In around 2 hours over 450 hens met their new owners and headed off to a life of sunshine, dustbathing and a spacious environment.

These hens made the journey from Yorkshire, and are unusually 90 weeks old – normally ex-commercial hens are re-homed at around 72 weeks – meaning that these hens have had their first moult with their new feathers grown and ready for winter.
