I just wanted to do a quick shout out to one of the very few Ex Commercial/Ex Battery Hen Rehome organisations in Scotland – Homes4Hens. Homes4Hens are based near Dumfries/Glencaple in Scotland and at present have rehomed over 1100 ex-commercial hens… but they desperately need to find more homes for these girls!
At present they have 140 hens waiting for homes, and if more homes are found then they can rescue a further 140 hens from slaughter this month (April 2012). If you think you can help – or would simply like to support their cause by donating some funds- then check out their website at http://www.homes4hens.co.uk and http://www.homes4hens.co.uk/re-home-a-hen.html
You can also contact Homes4Hens via their Facebook page.
This is important – PLEASE DO NOT leave a comment below asking for hens. I am NOT a coordinator and all adoptions must be undertaken through the above link.
