SO FAR WE HAVE REHOMED HENS

Rehome Hens

COVID-19 LATEST UPDATE

We are currently receiving unprecedented interest in the adoption of our hens but are now unable to carry out any hen collections or rehomings until the Covid-19 outbreak has passed.

In addition, due to the current restrictions, all BHWT colleagues are working remotely from home. As a result, we are unable to take phone calls and are fielding incoming enquiries using the following email addresses.

If you already have hens and need to order feed or bedding for your girls, we are still selling these items through our online shop. Doing your shopping through us will help to support the charity at this very difficult time and will enable us to continue helping more hens in the future. You can visit our shop by clicking here. 

Unfortunately we are unable to take any Smallholder Range feed orders until Monday, 30th March due to unprecedented demand. Please don’t call the BHWT or call the Smallholder Range, the staff there are working flat out to ensure they do not let anyone down, but need a few days to catch up with outstanding orders already placed. From Monday, we will be taking limited orders – a maximum of 30 per day – so please bear with us as we know the staff at Smallholder Range are as keen as we are to help fulfil all orders.

The safety and welfare of our beloved hens is, as always, a priority and we are advising all hen owners to take extra precautions. We have unfortunately been hearing anecdotal evidence of hens being stolen from their coops due to these unprecedented circumstances. Please be vigilant with your security and keep a close eye on your flock to keep them safe.

We are thinking of all those affected by Covid-19 and those working hard to keep people safe and well.

We find caring homes for thousands of commercial laying hens, like Angel and Ginger pictured above, every year. Without us, these lovely girls would otherwise be destined for slaughter. We have hen collection points all over the country and rehomings take place on a regular basis. To find the one nearest to you just click here. It is an Animal & Plant Health Agency requirement that all hens are traceable and we therefore require full contact details of rehomers.  We do not make a charge for the hens, but we do ask for a donation to cover what we pay the farmers, vet fees, fuel, phone bills, trailers, equipment and feed. Donations also support our ongoing work in campaigning for a free-range future for all hens. Most people are kind enough to give around £5 per hen.
