New neighbours have four chickens from a a re-homing centre finding grass, sun
and freedom in their garden.  Once their commercial laying time is over chickens are destined for slaughter.  But there are several re-homing centres across the UK which have re-homed thousands of chickens.  Two of these are the British Hen Welfare Trust at and Fresh Start for Hens but there are many more listed on the net.
If you have the space and time and would like wonderful fresh free range eggs
there are lots of chickens out there only too happy to oblige!


Most of us know little about the stark reality of what takes place in slaughterhouses to produce the meat we eat.  This is a gruelling account of one person’s experience.

Whatever decisions we individually take at the very least we can be educated and informed so as to make our choices.
