Further Information & Links

On this page I have included links to the British Hen Welfare Trust(BHWT) & Little Hen Rescue. Both these organisations are based in mainland UK and have years of experience rescuing and re-homing battery hens. Their knowledge & experience extends far beyond my own and I felt that visitors to Nut House Hen Rescue & Re-homing who would like further information would greatly benefit from these two sites. Should you know of any other sites you would like me to include links to, please email me on


To adopt a hen in mainland UK, please contact :-

"Life as a Battery Hen"


Please Watch this next one. Its hard hitting, but it needs to be seen


An amazing woman, Solarbats, from with her ex batts, Faith Hope & Charity. When Solarbats first took them in they couldnt even stand up. Please watch both videos to see what CAN be done


Here are three more videos from Solarbats who has done amazing work with her hens. Each video shows just how clever chickens really are. Point to ponder... If they can understand games like these then surely they can feel the pain and discomfort when packed into wire cages. Hens, just like our other pets require stimulation to keep them happy.
