Farm Selling 12,000 Hens For £1 Each In Bid To Save Them From Slaughter House


Please save us (Picture: SWNS)

Well, if the answer is yes, you could save one from the slaughter – and it will cost you just £1 per bird.

 

The hens, who have spent their lives putting eggs on the breakfast tables, have under a week to find new homes before they’re set to be killed – despite being perfectly healthy.

 

Owner of Babthorpe Hall Farm, Sheena Seals, said the 12,000 hens will continue to lay eggs for years, but her client wants them changed over every 13 months to avoid ‘deteriorating shell quality’.

 

So in a bid to save then, the woman from Selby, North Yorkshire, is selling them for less than your daily coffee.

 

In January 2017, Ms Seals ran a similar appeal to sell 2016’s hens.

 

All were re-homed to the amazement of the farm owner, who is hoping for something similar this year.

 

Ms Seels said: ‘The hens have a lovely temperament and just need a bit of space to roam.

 

‘It seems a shame for them to go to slaughter – they will save people a lot of money on buying eggs.

 

‘If anyone can give a hen a forever home that would mean a lot to everyone at Babthorpe Hall Farm.

 

‘The hens are commercial laying hens around 17 months old, all very well looked after – and still laying lots of eggs.’
