The Help-a-Hen Program
We’ve all seen the photos of hens living their entire lives in battery cages, unable to scratch and pick in the dirt or enjoy their lives. To any animal lover, this imagery is sickening, and the fact that it’s so commonplace is disappointing to the max.
We’re big believers in treating animals well, and we want to see others do the same. We here at Backyard Chicken Project want to see more happy, healthy hens, so we decided to do something about it.
We’re committed to doing all we can to help homeless and abused hens.
Our local animal shelter, Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester takes in those unwanted and abused hens. This shelter has taken in hundreds of hens from abuse and neglect and prepared them for adoption into loving homes.
This wonderful program always needs a helping hand to care for these chickens, so we decided to give it!
Through our Help-a-Hen Program, starting December 1st, 2018, Backyard Chicken Project will send 10% of all profits to Lollypop Farm to aid in the care of their chickens. This includes profits from our shop, sponsorships, and affiliates.
Help us help them. You can help a suffering hen find a new, loving home.
How you can help:
