A NEW rescue hen rehoming coop is set to hatch next weekend.
The British Hen Welfare Trust (BHWT), which finds new owners for former battery chickens, is expanding its flock with a new rehoming point in Alford.
Vet and BHWT Aberdeen co-ordinator Leanne Dawson will open the pop-up site on Saturday, January 9.
Hens need to be reserved in advance and directions to the site will only be given once registration is complete.
BHWT also aims to educate the public on how they can make a difference to hen welfare through making simple changes to their shopping habits.
