Have you ever wanted a new loving pet to add to the family? 

Or to wake up to your very own fresh eggs every morning? 

This Easter maybe your chance to do just that as the British Hen Welfare Trust is looking for kind-hearted people to rehouse their retired hens. 

The charity is hosting a hen re-homing day on Easter Sunday in Redruth, where they will have over 240 hens hoping for a new home.  

After reaching the end of their commercial egg-laying life, these hens are given a happy, free-range retirement through the efforts of the charity’s members who re house over 50,000 birds a year. 

Jane Howorth, founder of the trust has said: “These hens have been saved from slaughter and thanks to the kindness of local people, enjoy a free-range retirement.”  

“They really do make lovely pets, forming their own lovely characters and becoming beloved members of the household. The bonus of course is the possibility of fresh eggs in the morning.” 

If you would like to get involved and rehome some hens this Easter, please register your details at www.bhwt.org.uk and then call Hen Central on 01884 860084 to complete your booking. 

Registrations need to be completed by the end of Thursday.
