Here are our newly rescued ex-battery hens, thanks to the Hens Welfare Trust. Looking a bit mangey but hopefully they’ll soon recover and be ready to go outside for the first time
The factory farms ‘dispose’ of the hens when they are a year old as they become less than 100% efficient. The lucky ones are collected by the welfare trust and re-homed. If you want to read more about it or you’re up for rescuing some hens check out their site here.
