About Rosie's Hospice of Compassion

RHOC  was founded in 2017 by Nicole Beasley and incorporated in 2023. The Hospice is named after a very special hen. You can see Rosie Hen's story in this video.  


  • To  provide rescue, rehabilitation and/or  palliative  care to injured and disabled chickens.  Our hospice  chickens receive the highest quality veterinary  care, boundless love and reasons to live. 

  • To provide a range of public events promoting chickens as cherished companion animals. From Meet The Chickens Picnics and  Hospice Beach Adventures to Chicken  Health Check and Vaccination Days and even a Laughter Club with Chickens.

  • To provide support for Animal Carers. RCOH runs  meditation groups, self compassion workshops and gentle discussions on death and dying  for animal carers. 

We have a small dedicated and highly experienced foster care team and occasionally have chickens available for adoption to the best homes.
