Hens for Hire

School Hen Keeping Specialist

Springing into May….

The hens are all enjoying the lovely Spring weather here at Hens HQ or out at our hire schools across England.  Our fertile eggs are hatching bringing joy to children and staff, we still have a few available dates for this school year if you would like to bring chicks into the classroom 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 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.

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.
