Hens for Hire

School Hen Keeping Specialist

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.

Bird Flu Notice

Here at Hens for Hire we take the hens and your health and safety very seriously. The hens that are hired out to your setting are kept in a closed flock to minimise the risk of picking up infections. We also check all hens on their return to HQ for the holidays and when they return to schools. Bird Flu is transmitted via wild birds, as yours hens are kept in a enclosed run the chances of transmission are very low. Learn more
