Hens for Hire

School Hen Keeping Specialist

Summer Holidays at Hens HQ….

The hens and I are enjoying the summer at Hens HQ.  The hens have been relaxing, catching up with friends.  They have been enjoying dust baths, health check ups and lots of daily treats.  If you want to keep with what we get up to please visit our Facebook & Twitter Pages.
We are busy at Hens HQ developing exciting new products to add to our hire options.  We are quickly booking up for the next school year, if you are interested please get in touch. 
Hatching season has now finished, we have a few dates available for September 2016, after that it will be Spring 2017.  If you would like to bring the  joy of chicks to children and staff,  please contact Claire for further information.

Hen Keeping in Schools

Hens for Hire is a unique, award winning hire service. We offer schools the opportunity to experience hen keeping and all the benefits it brings to students, whilst removing the 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.

If you’d like to get in touch to discuss your requirements in person, why not give us a call or visit our Contact Page for more details.
