Hen Keeping in Schools

Hens for Hire is a unique hire service. We offer schools the opportunity to experience hen keeping and all the benefits it brings to students, whilst removing the set-up cost, on-going responsibility and holiday cover of keeping hens in school. We provide full support and training for all staff.

Interactive Learning With Hens

Keeping Hens helps connect young people with their environment, food and animals in both urban and rural settings. We provide you with the expertise, resources and information which are prepared by our teaching staff to make hen keeping in school easy, fun and rewarding.

Is Hens for Hire Right for you?

At Hens for Hire we want to make sure you get the best experience from your time spent keeping, caring for and learning from chickens. With this in mind, we have spent many years building Bespoke Hire Options for our wide variety of customers and we’ll be only too happy to do the same for you.

Each hire option is built around your individual budget, needs and curriculum plan and you can be sure of our ongoing support and training throughout our time together. You can find out more about our Hens for Hire, Incubator Hire and Courses with these links above.
