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.

Ban Battery Cages – from Compassion in World Farming

British Hen Welfare Trust (BHWT)

Chicken Out

Hen Rehomers (Fresh Start)

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

And a page from poultrykeeper.com that tells you all you need to know about getting started with ex-batts

  • The Hen House Archive

    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.

    July 2018 … Four new girls arrive, two LS bantams and two Mille Fleur Pekins.

    June 2018 … We had an extended heatwave, with daily temperatures in the 30s.
