About Wing and a Prayer Hen Rescue

Wing and a Prayer Hen Rescue has been a registered Scottish charity since August 2014 and are the first hen rescue charity in Scotland. We rescue  hens from commercial farms when flocks are replaced and rehome them as pets, saving them from slaughter and ensuring they get the retirement homes they deserve. The charity is a non-profit organisation, run entirely by volunteers and all of our funds are invested back into the charity to ensure more hens find their retirement homes.

There are rehoming points all across Scotland and rescues are planned as often as possible, usually every 4-6 weeks. For up to date information follow us on Facebook!

Hen(s) of the Month: Nugget, Susan and Rhubarb

I know you say hen of the month but I think my girls are too beautiful to choose between! Please find attached photo of Nugget, Susan and Rhubarb having a little nap in the sun! Yes that is my living room floor, they come in every day and Susan lays her egg behind her favourite curtain before having a wander through to the kitchen to try and steal food from the cats! 

We are all looking forward to hearing updates and seeing her 'after' pics when she has her feathers back :)
