Rescue Hens




19th July 2010

Our first advert launched in our local BuySell newspaper. A blinding response with 80 birds re-homed in the following week.  A second announcement placed for the following week.


26th July 2010

The word is out there! We can't believe the response we have had to the adverts, 140 hens have gone to happy homes this weekend.  I have had a report from one lady that her hens are all settled in and she has had her first eggs from the coop on the first morning.  Good girls!

Launch of the website. Spread the word and give a hen a home!  Please e-mail me some photos of your rescue hens so we can show off your lovely ladies.

We have had another great start to the weekend with another 130 birds going today, mainly thanks to Jayne who is doing an amazing job re-homing hens, she has taken 96 hens today! You can see a couple of her photos on our gallery.

We have had a great bank holiday weekend, with lots of people re-homing our ladies, we are approaching 500 being re-homed in only 4 weeks!

Wow we have had a great response to re-homing our hens, unfortunately a few were left to go into the food chain.  However I am sure next time even more will see out a  happy retirement.  We really need to congratulate the hundreds of re-homers and over 2000 hens went into a very happy retirement.

We are now advertising our re-homing in the local press over 200 have gone in the first weekend, it is lovely to see some familiar faces from last year.  The reports we are getting back is last years girls are still laying well and settled very quickly into there new homes.  Spread the word we are desperate to see as many ladies as possible go to good homes...

After succesfully rehoming thousands of our hens we have taken the decisssion to no longer produce eggs, this is due to many factors.  We would like to take this opportunuty to thank all of our re-homers and hope you girls are all doing well.  Many thanks for your support.  -  Lindsay and Steve x
