British Hen Welfare Trust – Dee the hen.


I’ve recently been commissioned by the British Hen Welfare Trust to create an illustration of Dee, the 500,000th hen to be rehomed by the charity, which is being donated and auctioned off at one of their fundraising events. As a former owner of chickens, I was so excited to start this little project!

This wonderful charity works so hard to save hens from slaughter and find them caring homes after their years of service laying eggs. It’s been such a pleasure working with the lovely ladies at BHWT and I can’t wait to finish the drawing part and add some bright colours to this illustration, ready to send off to Devon!

If you fancy donating to the charity, the donation page can be found on their website:
