Hens for Hire

School Hen Keeping Specialist

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.

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.
