Hen Adoption Dates & Locations

The Avian Influenza, the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent third nationwide lockdown on January 5, 2021 have brought our rehoming efforts to a halt. Whilst we would like to be able to continue to rehome hens, at this time we have to act to protect our staff, volunteers and adopters alike — strictly within both the COVID-19 and DEFRA lockdown restrictions.

Once we are able to start rehoming again you’ll be the first to know. Watch this page! In the meantime if you’d like to support the BHWT then please visit our Get Involved section of our website to learn how you can help.

Ready to adopt some hens?

To start your adoption application select the location you wish to adopt from on the map or list below and press the 'Apply' button. When you click on an adoption point, the next provisional rehoming date will appear. Be assured we update this page regularly as new dates are confirmed. If there isn’t an immediate adoption date scheduled at the adoption point you’ve selected, you can set up a notification alert that will automatically let you know when one is.

If you’re new to us as a BHWT adopter then we ask you to complete an online questionnaire as part of the application process. This will help us understand your level of hen keeping experience and proposed new hen keeping set-up, and if it is safe for your new hens. Once you have completed the questionnaire and sent it to us, you will then need to call us on 01884 860084 to chat through any issues or questions you may have. We do ask that applications be submitted no later than 4pm on a Thursday prior to your preferred weekend adoption date. This will give us time to thoroughly complete your application. .
Please also note that you will need to submit a photograph of your hen house and run as part of the application process.

And finally, before applying to adopt hens it’s a good idea to read our Frequently Asked Questions, even if you have previous hen keeping experience.
