Animal lovers in the north-east are being encouraged to give lonely hens a home.
Hen rehoming days will take place in the north-east next month.
More than 500 hens have been rehomed after an appeal was launched to save them from slaughter.
North-east residents will have the opportunity to provide hundreds of hens with a free-range home in time for Christmas.
A NEW rescue hen rehoming coop is set to hatch next weekend.
