As the long summer days call us back into our gardens and we begin to enjoy our outside spaces once more, why not consider gathering a few feathered friends together too?

With the aim of getting one step closer to rehoming our one millionth hen, the British Hen Welfare Trust is encouraging Stonehaven supporters to share their gardens with eggstra-special friends this summer.

The British Hen Welfare Trust believe that every single one of the 39 million commercial laying hens in the UK deserves the chance to live a free-range retirement in the open air and has been helping to make these dreams come true since 2005, relying on hen-spiring kind-hearted animal lovers to offer new homes to these hens destined for slaughter.

We will be holding a rehoming event near Stonehaven this weekend. If you think you or someone you may know would be able to give a hen the summer of their dreams, please contact us on 01884 860084 or email hens@bhwt.org.uk for more details.

All we ask is that you are able to rehome three or more hens and that you have plenty of space to get your girls settled in.

If you choose to rehome hens from the BHWT, we can help with advice and guidance. There’s a wealth of information on our website or give us a call on 01884 860084.

So, if you love the idea of the ‘good life’ and long summer evenings spent outdoors with your new clucky companions, why not consider sharing your garden with our home seeking hens?
