February Newsletter

So far in 2020, we have collected 4506 hens from commercial farms, the majority of which have started their lives in back gardens, schools and community associations.

Our diary is looking really busy for the coming months, with live rehome dates on the website for 22nd February (almost all gone), and our new Yorkshire farm on 7th and 14th March. Upcoming dates are already in planning – 28th March and then 4th and 18th April, with the fabulous Mac’s Farm hens.

We also have 500 ex commercial ducks coming on 8th March, although almost all of these have found homes already and we have now closed reservations.

We have lots of new volunteers coming on board and collection points are springing up in areas we’ve had little coverage previously, such as Oxford, Bromsgrove and Darlington, to name just a few. We could not run without our volunteer team and we are always looking for more, particularly drivers who are happy to hire and drive vans throughout England and Wales. If this is something that you would be interested in, please check out our website and complete the volunteer form.
