Little Hen Rescue are a 'not-for-profit' organisation, this means that every donation that goes to them goes back into the organisation much like a charity. Everybody who works and helps are there on a voluntary basis. They are a work in motion, everytime they have a rescue another enclosure is erected, or more poultry crates are bought.
Their aims are to give farmers another option to slaughter, as they and lots of you know these hens have so much more to give and many more years of happy egg laying. They rehome the hens on to people like yourselves with a good pet home for life.
The regularly save battery hens (typically warren hens), barn and free range laying hens, and have set dates to collect from their regular farmers.
They are running on the bread line due to high overheads and their 'we take all hens' rule, this means all the hens in the farm are taken when they arrive to collect them. As you may or may not know there are a small number of hens needing more time due to stress, wounds, broken limbs or deformity , these hens are the ones they treat and rehabilitate at Little Hen Rescue base in their hospital wing. Medicine and medical supplies come at a high cost so every donation is a god send.
They are based on a 2 acre plot in Norfolk, they rely on the good will of sponsors, farmers and re-homers alike.
Little Hen Rescue occasionally take in cockerels and other types of poultry such as turkeys, peafowl, quail, ducks and geese.
All homes are to be pet homes for life and their re-homed birds will remain on their data base, incase of future check-ups.
