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.
