British Hen Welfare Day!

We celebrated this year’s British Hen Welfare Day at Hen Central with a wonderful selection of yummy goodies.  It’s hard to decide which was the best but the BHWT cupcakes definitely made an impact, as did the fried egg lemon drizzle slices and a gorgeous cheese quiche, made using our founder Jane’s chickens’ eggs!  We […]

500,000 steps in 50 days!

Here is a lovely update from the inspiring Kyra de Groome about her 500,000 steps in 50 days challenge!  She has just finished the challenge and wanted to let everyone know how she got on: “I knew that my ‘Chicken Walk’ would be a challenge as I have a rather sedentary office job, so managing […]

Community Fundraising

Sometimes it seems that our creative and energetic community fundraising supporters can bring in funds to help hens from any event – local shows and fetes, jumble sales, car boot sales and yard sales all offer opportunities to re-cycle, de-clutter and raise some money at the same time – a double feel-good factor! You can sell egg […]

It’s Volunteers’ Week!

The start of June also marks the start of Volunteers’ Week so we would like to take the opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to all our volunteers. They do an incredible job for us and work so hard to help all our lovely hens. They’re often up at the crack of dawn to spend their weekend […]

Sponsor a Hen

Spring brings with it freshness and new beginnings – spring clean anyone?! With that in mind we thought it was time to give our Sponsor a Hen scheme a bit of a refresh. After all, there were 56,000 hens re-homed in 2016 and they all have a story to tell! So, here we introduce our […]
