Vicky Sewell helps with Fresh Start for Hens which works with farmers to rehome hens which have reached the end of their production use.

The charity is set to rehome 5,000 across the country and Mrs Sewell, who runs one of two collection points in Norfolk, will hope to rehome 300.

Mrs Sewell, who lives in Woodrising, near Watton, has said so far more than 200 hens have guaranteed homes as pets.

But there are still more hens which will be waiting to be picked up during the rehoming event on March 10.
