Cockerel Adoption

Cockerel
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 Lonely Hearts Club for Cockerels 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.

Please note all cockerels on this page are rehomed free of charge.

I want to say a huge thank you for putting the advert up for me. Puddle went to a really lovely home yesterday and has already settled in. His new owners have a large amount of land and a converted stable for their housing. And he has six BHWT ladies rescued in August to keep him company. His new owners have been sending me photos and updates. I am so grateful to you all at the BHWT, I really couldn’t have wished for a better home for him. I have made another donation to express my thanks.
