SPONSORED PRODUCT: Hens for Hire

Written by: HTU | Published:

“We contacted Hens for Hire and discussed our ideas with them and within a few weeks our hens had arrived, staff trained and we had our first eggs! We have now had our two chickens for nearly a year, and I have to say how fantastic an experience this is for our children."

A testimonial from Kerry Parker, the inclusions mentor at Springfield Junior School in Swadlincote.

“Our school is an ERS (enhanced resource school) in Derbyshire and we have children with special needs, learning difficulties and also children having difficulties with their behaviour. We decided it would be fun and also a great tool to house chickens within our school grounds.

“We contacted Hens for Hire and discussed our ideas with them and within a few weeks our hens had arrived, staff trained and we had our first eggs! We have now had our two chickens for nearly a year, and I have to say how fantastic an experience this is for our children.



“The chickens are extremely easy to keep and enhance the children`s learning of life cycles, where our food comes from, and most importantly being responsible for looking after a living thing. They are also fabulous to use as a reward tool for children struggling with their behaviour. They love feeding the hens and collecting the eggs too. Some even enjoy cleaning them out, once or twice a week.



“I feel that having our hens has made a fantastic difference to our school and I would highly recommend keeping them to anyone."
