Hens for Hire

School Hen Keeping Specialist

Happy New Year

We would like to wish all our ‘henthusiasts’ a very happy 2016.  We had a busy end to 2015 with our big move f both house and business to our new location.  The hens enjoyed a lovely Christmas in the new ‘chicken barn’ with lots of space to stretch around in out of the rain and mud.
We enjoyed our most successful year to date in 2015 working with over 25 000 students and staff  around the country sharing the joy of hens.  We have hatched over 200 chicks showing the lifecycle of the humble hen.  We have had our share of media exposure the most unusual being the Spectator.  We have lots planned for 2016, new and improved hen courses at our new Hens HQ along with our on site shop and hens for sale.  More new innovations in our hens for hire service, more information to follow.

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.
