Gallus domesticus

We can care for up to 20 hens at the moment. But we have big plans to help more!​

Dave and Izzy introduce us to Beatrice and Buckbeak, two of the rescued hens who live here at Goodheart Farm Animal Sanctuary. 

The girls both enjoy exploring the yard with their friends in the daytime and sleep in a safe, cosy coop at night. 

All donations help us care for rescued animals

Caring for animals means more than just meeting their physical needs – we also take the time to make sure all of our residents are mentally stimulated, too. 

A great way to keep our hens’ minds engaged is with fun enrichment activities, like a spot of apple bobbing!

Adopting one of our residents is a great way to help rescued animals while treating yourself or a loved one to something really special!

Social structurePigs are social animals, preferring to live in female-led groups. In the wild, young males (boars) will leave this group and join another when it is time to mate.
