Who Gives a Cluck
We are a registered Australian charity that rescues & rehomes hens from the egg laying industry and provides advice to backyard hen owners on all things hens!
Save a hen!
Be a Hen Hero!
Every dollar you donate goes straight to the hens welfare (we are all volunteers). You’ll be helping Who Gives A Cluck care for all our hospital and retired hens (nearly 100 little girls), save more chooks & get more research done so we can give helpful advice to all Aussie backyard hen owners.

Save a Chook
Are you a Mother Clucker?
Hen Parent, Mother Clucker, Chook Carer! No more name calling! Let’s get you approved as a Mother Clucker now. As long as you have a recent photo of your hen coop and your hen area, please click on the link below so we can give you the big thumbs up for hen parentdom!
Can you be a Volunteer?
We can only increase the number of rescues we do as we grow the number of our volunteers. We need volunteers on the ground, helping with rescues and in many areas of the business, from social media to volunteer co-ordination. Please consider being a volunteer to help in any way that suits you.
What we do
in an eggshell
“It’s the worst part about what I do.” – egg farmers.
We work with egg farm owners, collecting all their hens at the time when they would’ve culled them at around two years of age, when they are no longer commercially viable because they don’t lay an egg every day! The egg farmers happily tell their customers that all their hens find forever homes!
Finding Chooks Their Forever Home
“Every chook deserves a happy retirement!” – every hen.
It is important these rescued hens go to their forever homes, where they will be cared for, egg or no egg. We have an approval process for hen parents now affectionately called ‘Mother Cluckers!’
“So much to learn, so little time” Who Gives A Cluck
Through our years of hands on experience and research, we’ve been able to find helpful ways to care for hens health & happiness. We our chooksperts of a sorts! If we don’t know, we find answers, because more hens will be happier and healthier! Of course, always see your avian vet if you are concerned.
Advocate for Chook Welfare
“There is always a better way” Anon
A chicken or as we call them in Australia, a chook, can be a hen (pullet when young) or a rooster (cockerel when young). We want better welfare for all chooks no matter what they are bred for – egg laying, meat, school projects, backyard hens. They all deserve to live a happy healthy life . We will be one of the loudest voices advocating for better standards for chooks in Australia.
