Re-home an ex-battery hen


Owning an urban hen is one of the best ways to bring the countryside into your London yard, and what better way to bring a lovely hen into your life than to adopt one?

The British Hen Welfare Trust is campaigning for a free-range future, aiming to give former battery hens a new home. Adoption is free, although any donations to the charity is welcome. You can also find a comprehensive guide on their website which every budding hen-owner should read.

Not got enough space or time to look after an urban hen? Don’t worry you can sponsor one instead.

  1. As a hopeful adopter, at somepoint, I would be very interested to read what other owners have to say!

  2. Good use of image and a cc licence. I wouldn’t include your email as a whole link but would style it out as eastendgardener[at]gmail[dot]com to stop evil spammers.

    Good luck in finding a hen owner – or if you of you gets a hen themselves!

    PS – Tash can we get a hen?
