The British Hen Welfare Trust think all laying hens deserve to enjoy natural freedoms whilst they lay tasty eggs for people to eat; that means freedom to roam on green pasture, freedom to enjoy sunshine, freedom to scratch for insects and freedom to lay an egg in a nest. Each year they save approximately 60,000 hens from slaughter and find them caring pet homes so they can enjoy a free range retirement. They educate consumers about the caged eggs hidden in processed foods so they can make an informed choice when shopping.
