Rehome Hens

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. If you would like to adopt some hens follow steps 1, 2 and 3 below:

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions even if you have previous experience in hen keeping, there are important points you need to read.

If you haven’t previously applied or rehomed from us before, then please apply using the link here.

Step 3

If you’re adopting for the first time when you have completed the online application please call us on 01884 860084 during our office hours to complete the second stage just so we can be sure you’re happy with everything.

If you have adopted from us before, there’s no need to call us, simply email hens@bhwt.co.uk telling us how many hens you would like and your postcode – we will do the rest, and do our best to get some hens for you as soon as possible.
Please note, there is no answerphone service on our phone currently due to the volume of calls we are handling. Please be patient, we are as keen as you are to get your hens booked.
