British Hen Welfare Day 2017

The second ever British Hen Welfare Day will be held on Friday, 22 September, and this year’s event is all about crazy cupcakes! We’d love our supporters, old and new, up and down the country to get involved and use their girls’ eggs to whip up some wonderful cupcake creations.

Then, simply share them with friends, family or colleagues in exchange for a donation – after all , they’re worth it right?!

The cupcakey possibilities are endless – from red velvet to chocolate, lemon to toffee, there is a cupcake out there to suit everyone’s taste buds. So long as the eggs you use are free range, the rest is up to you! Or, why not have your own British Hen Welfare Trust cake toppers made?!

Those who keep their own hens have got the added luxury of being able to bake with freshly laid eggs from their own back garden – you don’t get more free range than that. Better yet, print off a photo of your hens to show whoever is eating your cupcakes exactly where the eggs in their delicious treat have come from.

All proceeds raised from British Hen Welfare Day will be put towards building the UK’s first dedicated hen welfare and education centre – a Happy Hen Care Home if you will.

The charity would love those taking part in BHWD to share their photos on social media using the hashtag #BHWD2017. There is a wonderful prize for whoever bakes the best cupcakes. The winner will receive a 12-hole muffin pan and a duo-colour icing kit courtesy of Lakeland!
