Rehome your cockerel

Pure breed cockerel

If you’d like to advertise your handsome cockerel(s) we don’t charge but we do ask for a donation, and most people kindly give £5 per cockerel.

As soon as we receive your donation we will aim to upload your advert within five working days and the process of finding your handsome cockerel a new home can begin!

Your donation will help further our work rehoming over 60,000 ex-commercial hens each year as well as raising awareness of hen welfare and striving to improve veterinary treatments for pet hens.

Each advert will stay on our Lonely Hearts Club for Cockerels for a month, simply fill in your details below to donate.

We’d love to help you find your cockerel a home and ask for a small donation to cover our administration costs and to help us continue improving hen welfare throughout the nation.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows British Hen Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to British Hen Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like British Hen Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that British Hen Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When British Hen Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
