Now you might 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...

Fresh Eggs, Meat for the table

cleaning out

Eggs, affection, personality

Early mornings

Whats the story behind my chickens? I've always been a fan of the BBC's "Good life" and the idea of self-sufficiency has always appealed to me, so when, in January 2005 we moved into a much bigger house that had a fair whack of land, I thought; "We should get chickens." I don't claim to be a...

“Four of my feathered friends”

Friendly and inquisitive and easy to keep

None

I have kept my lovely chickens now for almost five years and I have four of them at my allotment. They are all female hens and this is where I get all my eggs from and I never have to buy an egg from the supermarket, which is nice, as I like to know where my eggs have come from. Sometimes I have...

“th Aussies call them chucks!”

eggs, fancy breeds look good on your lawn

encourage rats and mice, get eaten by foxes

I started with chickens some years ago when I bought for crossbred pullets. A pullet is a young hen just coming up to laying. The farmer we bought them of skillfully scooped them up and into a large cardboard box. When we got them home they moved into the new coop we had made especially for them...
