The British Hen Welfare Trust is not a sanctuary for poultry as we focus solely on rehoming end of lay commercial laying hens. However we know that many of you would like an opportunity to help the unwanted chaps who deserve a chance to live with a group of hens as nature intended.
For this reason we have set up our cockerel lonely hearts page where you can post a photograph and a few lines about your cockerel in the hope that a caring pet home can be found. Please note all cockerels on this page should be homed free of charge.
If you’d like to advertise your handsome chap(s) we don’t charge but we do ask for a donation, and most people kindly give £5 per cockerel. As soon as we receive your donation we will upload your advert and the process of finding your handsome chap a new home can begin! Your donation will help further our work rehoming over 70,000 ex-bats each year as well as raising awareness of hen welfare and striving to improve veterinary treatments for pet hens.
Each advert will stay on our cockerel lonely hearts page for three weeks. Simply fill in your details below to donate.
- We are unable to guarantee a successful outcome for your cockerel.

- This service is not for commercial use.
- Your contact details will be published on our website as part of the advert to enable potential rehomers to make contact.
Having said that, we wish you all the best in finding a loving home for your handsome chap.
