|Happy hens at Exe Valley Eggs, Devon|
The British Hen Welfare Trust (formerly the Battery Hen Welfare Trust) is a national charity that re-homes commercial laying hens, educates the public about how they can make a difference to hen welfare, and encourages support for the British egg industry. Its ultimate aim is to see consumers and food manufacturers buying only UK produced free range eggs, resulting in a strong British egg industry where all commercial laying hens enjoy a good quality life.
The aim of this website is to inspire YOU to help US achieve a better future for the 16 million battery hens currently in cages in the UK.
Founded as the UK’s first registered charity for laying hens in April 2005 we have helped tens of thousands of hens enjoy a second chance in life rather than go from cage to slaughter.
I hope you enjoy our website.
