We exist simply to give an overlooked and poorly treated animal a chance to live, flourish and enjoy life. A bird which is arguably the most abused animal in the world. Many of you have seen this for yourselves; you have seen the condition the hens arrive in, you may even have hens in your coops right now that would have been slaughtered long ago had we not been here to intervene.
We love Homes4Hens. We believe the work we do has value because we believe in the value of every small feathered life. Behind the eyes of a chicken is a sentient, intelligent and characterful creature that wants to live and be free from cages. Those of you that have offered homes, I know that your chickens will have enriched your lives as much as you have enriched theirs. That is the magic of Homes4Hens, everybody benefits.
So, some hard truths.
Things have been REALLY tough for the last two years. Covid, Bird-flu, the cost of living crisis, etc. You’ve probably noticed yourselves that the cost of feed has nearly doubled, bedding is over ten pound a bail and the fuel prices are just horrendous!
We are losing our monthly supporters as people turn to look after their own finances whilst at the same time we are being hit with huge increases in running costs. It is not sustainable. Each time we fundraise with GoFundMe it buys us a little more time but it’s a tight-rope walk and sooner or later we are going to fall off.
Ok, so what can we do about it?
Most importantly, we need monthly supporters. As a monthly patron you help provide the lifeline Homes4Hens desperately needs. It allows us to plan ahead knowing roughly what we have to spend each month.
It’s really simple; please donate £10 per month, just 30p a day and you provide us with the lifeline we really need. If enough people are willing to do this then we keep on providing a future after farming for hens.

If ten pounds a month is difficult we can help you to set up a recurring monthly payment for any amount or you can make a one off donation at the bottom of this page.
Please Tell your friends, family and work colleagues about us. We try not to spend anything on advertising so word-of-mouth is our best hope. Homes4Hens is a small charity doing big things and it is clear to see how your donation makes a direct difference to the many hens we save. Please help us if you can.
