Day Visits

Activity Days-let us bring the EGGventure to you! 

The Hens for Hire team will come into your setting, with a selection of HENtastic birds, with lots of handling of the hens. We can tailor the day for you and hold sessions for small groups, inside or outside (depending on the weather).

 Perfect for little hands and short attention spans!

Our sessions last approximately 30-45 mins per session, where children or residents and staff will get hands-on handling with a selection of our lovely fluffy chicks or ducklings, great for outside gatherings. We also have a choice of dressing up clothes, chick toys (for children not too keen on handling the chicks), plus a few songs.Minimum booking a day 10.30am-2.30pm

Each session includes:

  • All the materials and live animals.
  • Travel to and from your location.

Available from Spring – Autumn (ducklings only available in June/July)

We can tailor our talk to fit your location and the event time. We can even bring some feathered friends along.

We also offer visits for staff and teacher training days. These can be full or half-day visits. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for more details.
