Quiet hen

This is set to be a feather-rufflingly brilliant year here at the BHWT as we look forward to rehoming our ONE MILLIONTH HEN!

We are unbelievably proud to say that this is a worldwide first for a charity, and our lucky hen has no idea of the stardom that awaits her later this year. Or the positive impact she will make on how the public view chickens.

We will be celebrating in sp-egg-tacular style throughout the year AND we want you to join our flock and celebrate with us!

A year of hentertainment

We’ll be asking our volunteers, patrons, supporters and some very special guests to get involved with our ONE MILLIONTH HEN celebrations.

From getting creative with community fundraising to hengaging with us on social media, there are multiple ways for you to celebrate with us. Keep an eye on our social media and join our mailing list to keep abreast of our plans.

One Millionth Hen Bake for Hens' Sake image

Bake and make ONE MILLION more hens happy!

ONE MILLION hens… just think of all the eggs those lucky ladies have laid. And the number of delicious cakes, bakes and treats that have been whipped up using them! As part of our celebrations we’re asking our star bakers to dust off their aprons, collect the freshest eggs only your own hens can provide and get baking to raise one million pennies!

Register your interest here to receive a bake sale pack with special ONE MILLIONTH HEN fundraising tips and limited edition gold cake toppers!

An eggs-cellent way to help hen welfare!

We’ve had a cracking idea for our Egg Clubbers for the ONE MILLIONTH milestone. We hope to raise £10,000 (that’s one million pennies!) to help purchase equipment for hen welfare courses.

We’re asking YOU to join our wonderful Egg Clubbers who politely encourage their hens to help other hens by continuing to lay eggs in exchange for a donation. Some take retirement seriously and won’t consider it, others are only too happy to help and we’ve got some special ONE MILLIONTH egg box labels and BHWT story cards to help raise awareness amongst family and friends. How helpful are your hens?

Million Hens Higgidy Quiche image

A quiche collaboration

We’ve always been proud to sing our praises of Higgidy who place the welfare of the hens laying the eggs they use at the forefront. This year, we’re excited to announce the launch of a limited edition quiche which, not only sounds DELICIOUS but celebrates our milestone achievement!

Higgidy will donate £5,000 from the sales of these quiches (available from Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Ocado and Booths) so we’d love to see them feature at your summer soirees and picnics.

A competition worth a million clucks (well nearly!)
