Our number one objective is helping hens and all of us at the BHWT are excited about gradually getting back into action. We are working through our waiting lists to ensure we rehome as quickly and fairly as we can, but will post up rehoming dates again on our website soon.
You can be sure we are doing our best, in a safe way, to increase the number of pets in your family – quite simply because we have hens who want to be with you!
Thanks for your patience, and support, we really appreciate it.
We look forward to speaking to you.
The BHWT Team (August 2020)
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:
If you’re adopting for the first time when you have completed online registration 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.
