We started our Hen Keeping adventures with some rescue hens from BHWT (see below) … here are some links to various sites involved in hen welfare and rescue.

If you find any broken links, please let me know.

Hen Rehoming Hub – a site that searches by postcode for your nearest source of ex-battery hens for rescue

    Our original hen keeping adventure came to an end in January 2013, when a fox took our entire brood of hens. But don’t let that put you off … you can find the story at The Hen House Archive where there are still lots of stories, photos, and information about keeping hens I hope you'll find useful.

    March 2017 ... All change in the hen garden as the fruit cage run is retired in favour of an electric fence, the veg beds are relocated to put the hens on fresh ground, and the new girls arrive, Dorcas, Delilah and Deanna.

    January 2017 ... Bird flu outbreak and all domestic foul are quarantined until the end of February.
