The egg that does not kill the hen.

Do you know that I only use some Poulehouse eggs to bake my cakes?

Poulehouse is an innovative concept which is respectful of all forms of life. Poulehouse means "The House of Hens" in french. This project offers the first eggs that do not kill the hens with a mode of production without slaughter. And this is the reason why I decided to only use these eggs to bake my cakes.

Poulehouse is a new organic egg brand that places animal welfare and product quality at the center of its interests.

When I eat eggs, it kills hens...?

Sadly yes, the hens are not allowed to live more than 18 months for hideous productivity reasons, while, in fact, they could live up to 10 years!

Until today, in all farming modes (even organic) laying hens are sent to the slaughterhouse after 18 months because they start to lay less and become less profitable.

Is it really necessary to kill the hens after only 18 months?

Absolutly not! The new organic egg brand Poulehouse has decided to welcome the hens of its breeders to their 18 months to allow them to live a peaceful retreat in their refuge named "The House of Hens" until their natural death. Poulehouse have imagined a new mode of production:

✔ All farmers agree with Poulehouse to no longer provide in female chicks having the beak cut and to send hens that have reached the age of "reform" in their refuge named "House of Hens" rather than at the slaughterhouse.

✔ Poulehouse pay the breeders better to value their work and to encourage them in their approach. Poulehouse is currently working in partnership with four organic farmers located in the Eure, Somme, Loiret and Eure-et-Loir.

The refuge "La Maison des Poules" is located in Limousin and is already fully prepared for the reception of the first hens in February-March 2018.

The land measures about 16 hectares, there are huge expanses of grass, a small lake, and a large house with several rooms for volunteers who would like to help! It will be opened to the public and will even be the subject of educational visits!

Finally, the living conditions of the hens at the shelter will follow the standards of organic farming in every respect.

With Poulehouse, we save the hens! When I buy Poulehouse eggs to bake my cakes, a part of the price I pay is used to finance the happy end of life of the hens and I really love this idea.

How is this organic egg brand more ethical?

  • Poulehouse egg production does not require killing chickens when their laying rate starts to decline
  • Poulehouse works for animal welfare by indirectly encouraging hatcheries to no longer cut the beaks and wings of chickens
  • Poulehouse is working with ethologists to determine optimal living conditions for hens once they are in the refuge

The Poulehouse eggs are available in different stores (but beware, not in every stores): Biocoop, Naturalia, Franprix and lots of independent organic shops.

Personally, I buy my Poulehouse eggs at one of the Sequoia shops in Brussels but there are other stores selling them around.

Look at the map below to find your nearest shop.

Did I convince you? I wish I did.

About 6€ for 6 eggs, you may say that it is very expensive... Yes, indeed, the Poulehouse egg is more expensive than all the other eggs found on the market today. And for good reasons, it is the only one that takes into account the years of life of thousands of hens... but not only!

The main values of Poulehouse are innovation, ethics, human, transparency. They are a small team but Fabien Sauleman, Sébastien Neusch, Elodie Pellegrain, May Rose Makhlouf and Clara Bondon are so inspiring and motivated people.

More than 250.000 eggs have been already sold since the beginning of this promising project. Let's continue!

Kind regards,

I wanted to thank you so very much for helping to make our baby shower so perfectly sweet! Everyone was just amazed with how perfect everything looked and of course it was all equally delicious. I loved the bunny topper so much that I'm trying to figure out if I can preserve it somehow. Just completely precious. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. It was so much fun to show up and see your stunning works of art. They were such a hit. Much love,
