Yes it is finally Summer! (well in name) we have some fantastic evening mini courses here at Hens HQ.
Mini Mites Course is perfect to refresh you on what to do to deal with mites in your flock and hen house. If you are new to hen keeping, it will give you all the knowledge you need! All in a relaxed environment, light refreshments included plus 10% off mite products in the shop.
Hen Herbs & ‘Chook-Tails’ to celebrate turning 5, we will be sharing the different herbs you can use with your hens and hen house and making a herb ring to take home. We will also enjoy some evening cocktails, alcoholic an non alcoholic.

Our hens and pupils are getting into shape as part of this terms Egglympics competition. To celebrate a summer of sport and the 2016 Olympics in Rio. The challenge for the schools is to train their hens to complete some obstacles and send us the video. Not wanting to be left out we have been having a go at Hens HQ. You can watch our training videos via our Facebook & Twitter pages.
Our top tip for Hen training is……GRAPES! definitely the right treat to motivate the girls to join in! Also keep the training short and sweet!
Good Luck, we can’t wait to see your videos!
I know that sounds a long way off but here at Hens HQ we are already busy planning our hatchings for next Spring.
For Schools that hire hens for a full school year your incubator hire is included in your hire. For 2017 you will have a choice of what to hatch, chickens/ducks/quails
Also for all settings that hire incubators you will have the option to ‘Watch us Grow’ a fantastic opportunity to see the chicks develop into young adult birds.
It s the start of the new school year and we have been really busy with hens returning to school and starting at new schools.
We hope all the hens are settling in well and both students and staff are enjoying the hens and the fresh eggs.
If your school would like to buy a hen package, have it set up at your location and staff trained please get in touch.
We were thrilled to be featured in the Guardian Newspaper back in March this year. Being able to share what we do with so many people has been wonderful. If you have a minute or two, have a look at the full article here.
Quails are a fantastic addition to your hen hire package. We provide everything for the care of the quails and full training and support to look after them.
Here at Hens For Hire HQ we have hens of all shapes and sizes, you birds we are growing on to join the school hens, girls who have retired plus a few of my favourites!
If you follow us on twitter you know we are also promoting hen re-homing through the British Hen Welfare Trust. We decided to adopt our own hens through the BHWT website, its a great way to hug a hen if you haven’t got room for some at home. Meet our girls…Minerva and Little Flo.
