Rehoming Hens in Schools
There is growing research to show that animals in schools can help reduce stress and anxiety in pupils, as well as build confidence, empathy and life skills. It is therefore not surprising that more schools are looking at keeping animals.
Chickens have often been a popular choice as school pets. Not only are they friendly and charismatic, they lay fresh eggs and provide a variety of links to areas across the curriculum. Another benefit of keeping school hens is that they live outside in small flocks, allowing them plenty of breaks from children throughout the day during lessons. The hens we rehome are all ex-commercial hens destined for slaughter, but given the chance can go on to lead long, happy, laying lives in your school.
Owning a flock of school hens can be rewarding for pupils and staff alike, but before you opt to adopt our ex-bats, please do plenty of research to make sure you can give them all the care they need.
