Give a Hen a Home is a Community Interest Company based in Lancashire, set up to help hens in need.
We rescue and rehome hens who would otherwise be culled at only 18 months old from commercial egg-laying farms.
The majority of these hens have plenty of life and love in them if they are given the chance and housed in correct conditions. Once having been rescued and given a little tlc these hens blossom, growing back their feathers and most begin to lay again.
They are very friendly and inquisitive not to mention intelligent. They have the brain capacity of a young toddler – can be taught to pick out colours and can learn to problem solve. We have many other ideas and aims, please check out our website and Facebook page to learn more.
Pupils get to learn and get excited about fundraising and charitable giving for a Social Enterprise knowing their achievement will have a far-reaching impact helping to give them that feel good factor! You could also take the opportunity to teach them a little on Animal Welfare and Farming.
