Where to get ex-battery Hens for re-homing
A Fresh Start for Hens have regular rescues around the Country
A Fresh Start for Hens
is a Battery Hen rescue Organization recently formed from 'Hen Re-Homers UK'. They have regular rescues around the Country and your Hens can be picked up from various Co-Ordinators at specified collection points.
All the main Organizers and some of the Rescue Co-Ordinators are long serving Members of the Down the Lane Forum and I can totally vouch for their sincerity and honesty in all communications, payments and general helpfulness.
I'm sure you appreciate that the logistics for these rescues is quite huge; you may have a rescue from the north of England and the right amount of Hens have to be separated to Vans taking them to their assigned collection points.
All the Co-Ordinators and Drivers do this work on a voluntary basis so there is a very minimal charge for the Hens to cover costs of Van Hire and Petrol etc. No profit is sought, should there be, this is put back into the next rescue, but all the necessary information can be found on their Website
'Fresh Start for Hens'
and you may find visiting their own Category in the
Down the Lane Forum very useful as well.
