... With various vegetable patches and a herb garden, the next logical step was apparently chickens!! Purchasing the Chickens Chickens vary massively in cost and with so many options, we eventually settled on purchasing a kind of "package" which included the chicken house, run and three ...

THE CHICKENS THAT HATE ME!!! Review with images

Advantageseggs, interesting pets, fertilise your garden,

Disadvantagestake a lot of care, smell, they only lay for 4 years

"...chicken house, run and three chickens for around £390. This seems like a lot of money to me but apparently not seeing as most chicken houses (the properly built ones that foxes cant get into) cost around this anyway. The house and run that we purchased was the 'eglu' which is sold by a company called Omlet and is easy to clean and a good secure design too. It took a week or so and the whole lot was delivered and assembled by a nice man that seemed ..." Read review

JUST CLUCKING AROUND Review with images

AdvantagesSomeone to talk too and they don't answer back. oh, and lots of eggs.

DisadvantagesYou don't get a day off

"...breeder and make notes - chickens start to all look the same by the time you get to the 30th pen. What is your budget? A fancy chicken can cost upwards of £40 if bought at 20 weeks. They are much cheaper the younger they are but will probably not be sexed. This means you have to wait and see if you have boys or girls which is a bit of a gamble. I'm sure you can guess what happens to unwanted boy birdies. Do you want a cockerel? The cockerels we ..." Read review

"...thinking about buying yourself some chickens the first thing you need to decide is whether you are buying chicks or chickens, there are pro’s and con’s of buying either first which will be stated further in the review.

Chick-chick-chick-chick - Chicken!! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat to watch, they lay eggs for you, gives battery hens a decent life

DisadvantagesHutch etc can be expensive, need quite alot of room

"...be surprised to hear that chickens are one animal I currently do not have. This is due to that fact that there is not enough room in my back garden to keep them. So why am I writing a review in Chickens then? That’s because up until three years ago, I lived in the countryside with my parents and they do have chickens. Also, whenever my parents go on holiday, I have to job of looking after all their animals, including the chickens so I know a fair ..." Read review

Clucking Brilliant Pet Review with images

Advantagesfresh eggs, facinating to watch, easy to look after

DisadvantagesCan make a mess

"...looked around before purchasing our chickens and found that there were many places to get them from. The website www.preloved.co.uk seemed to be quite a good website and it was while we were browsing on there that we came across an advert offering bantam chickens and with it being only a 20 minute drive away, we headed over to have a look and 40 minutes later, left with our first two chickens. Another place to get chickens is from a battery farm. ..." Read review
