Hens for Hire

School Hen Keeping Specialist

Hen Keeping & Hatching in Schools

Hens for Hire is a unique, award winning hire service. We offer schools the opportunity to experience hen keeping and Incubator Hatching with 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.

Hens For Hire won the Theo Phaphitis Small Business Sunday Award.

#sbs Small Business WinnerSo what is Small Business Sunday? #SBS as it’s known by it’s ‘hash tag’ handle on Twitter, was created by Theo Paphitis back in October 2010. Each week small business owners like us have to pitch passionately about our business in 140 characters or less. Theo then reviews the tweets he receives and chooses his favourites.
