HENS are looking for new homes in Kineton.

A huge chicken rehoming event is taking place at locations across the country this weekend to save them from slaughter.

The British Hen Welfare Trust is looking for families to adopt the hens and a rehoming event is taking place locally in Kineton on Saturday (April 15).

Once they reach 18 months old, commercial laying hens are sent to slaughter and replaced with younger hens who will lay more eggs. But they have so much more life left which is why the charity rehomes them.

Francesca Mapp, BHWT marketing consultant, said: “Having kept hens myself I can vouch for what brilliant companions they make. There’s nothing quite like enjoying a cuppa and listening to some gentle chicken chatter in the spring sunshine.

“By adopting a small flock of hens you’re quite literally saving their lives. We don’t want to leave any hens behind so please, if you can, get in touch and adopt some today.”
