Hens in Forever Homes so far!
Based in Dumfries and Galloways, Founded in 2009 we provide a hen re-homing facility in Scotland
Homes4hens exists to give commercial laying hens a future after farming. Our aim is to inspire you to provide a free-range retirement for ex-laying hens otherwise destined for slaughter.
We launched our hen rescue after collecting 6 hens to keep as pets from a local farm. Within 30 minutes of watching the hens explore their new lifestyle we realized that we wanted to do more so we returned the following day and brought home 20 more hens! The urge to provide a better future for ex-commercial hens grew with our enjoyment of watching them and so we decided to launch Homes4Hens.
Since 2009 we have helped thousands of hens enjoy a second chance
We buy 'commercially spent' hens from UK farmers who support our work, we treat the girls to a health check up, seeing to any care or attention they may need before releasing them to loving homes.
If you choose to re-home a few hens from us we hope that you will find it as rewarding an experience as we do. Not only are you providing commercial chickens with a well earned retirement and saving them from slaughter but they also reward you with great eggs and great entertainment.
