A new start for myriad hens
FRESH START For Hens has saved a whopping 2,100 hens from slaughter from a farm in Essex. The not-for-profit organisation works hard to re-home ex-commercial hens, with a fleet of volunteers based around the country helping birds retire to their forever homes. Fresh Start For Hens buys chickens from farmers when they are 18 months old and past their prime laying age. Chickens are then rehomed for a minimum donation of £2.50 to cover costs.
Fresh Start For Hens is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers. They are committed to rehoming hens, raising awareness of the importance of buying free range eggs and supporting farmers. With more than 150 collection points around the country, the organisation is determined to see every ex-commercial hen find her perfect home.
