Rinse hen; place in slow cooker or large stockpot. Add carrots, onions, celery, mushrooms, garlic, parsley, thyme, peppercorns and bay leaves. Pour in water. Cover and cook on low until richly flavoured, 8 to 10 hours in slow cooker, 4 hours on stove top.

Discard hen. Strain stock through cheesecloth-lined sieve into large bowl, pressing vegetables to extract liquid. Remove fat. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate, uncovered, in airtight container until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 4 months.)
