Broadcast on Thursday 10th January 2019. Our studio guest was James Green, a volunteer at Fresh Start for Hens (FSFH) in Tenterden who rehome hens which are due for slaughter. The organisation is run entirely by volunteers who are either contacted directly by farmers who have a flock of hens due for the slaughterhouse (usually at 18 months into their lives the hens are no longer producing the quantity of eggs required. FSFH have set rehoming dates throughout the year and 60 collection points across the country.
Listen to the show to find out more about how FSFH operate and maybe you could be a future hen rehomer!
