The British Hen Welfare Trust is not a sanctuary for poultry as we focus solely on rehoming end of lay commercial laying hens. However, we care about all chickens and know that many of you would like to help the unwanted cockerels who deserve the chance to live with a group of hens, just as nature intended.
For this reason, we set up our Cockerel Lonely Hearts scheme to help the boys find their new flock. Whether you’re looking for a new cockerel, or you have a cockerel who needs to find a new home, our lonely hearts scheme is designed to send these lovely birds on their way to a safe and cosy coop.
If your hens are looking for a new fella, see below for the cockerels currently available for adoption.
