Hens are adored by many people from all walks of life and the support we get from celebrities helps us to raise the profile of our work.
We talk to successful British dressage rider, Carl Hester, about hens, horses and the Olympic games.
Here we talk to designer-to-die-for Sophie Allport whose gorgeous range of household items – including her much-adored chicken range brings joy to many homes across the UK and are a firm favourite in the BHWT shop? Sophie lives with her husband and 3 sons in Lincolnshire.
We talk to Jamie Oliver – celebrity chef, restaurateur and BHWT Patron about hen welfare, free range eggs and promoting good nutrition.
"I am well organised and have a loving family. So long as they are fed, watered and you shift the house regularly, they're happy. That's the chicken, not the family."
"When I was little, my mother kept about 20 bantams, and they were fantastic until we were left with only one. She was called Penelope and became very tame & loved being tickled while being fed corn!"
"We had hens before we had children! The ex-battery hens came first! We all really really love our hens - but love their eggs too!"
