I live with my partner of 23 years and our 6 year old son,in a 2 bed semi with a 121 ft garden.Weve been keeping chickens since sept 06,a dream come true for me!.We started with 2 chickens `sally & flo` that came from Omlet with our eglu.
This year I wanted some more and found out about the ex-battery hens.We rescued 8 and they are an absulute delight!.My special ladies have settled in beautifully and its so nice to see them happy and scratching about naturally.All the eggs taste delicious and their yolks are so golden.`flo` gave us our first doulble yolker over the summer!it was yummy just simply fried.
They all want to join in when were down in their patch and they come running when they here us coming!.They start clucking like there talking to us ( I know Im nuts!).
We also have 4rabbits,Jasper,Duchess,Storm &Shadow,4 cats Elsa,Jim,Katy & samson and 1goldfish called Dori.
If you want chickens and dont know where to start,this course is for you.Come and see us and handle and hug a chicken soon!!!.They make very good pets and are so easy to keep.
(children over 12 are welcome,but must book a place please and only if they are really interested.Thankyou)
(please note that "wing clipping" cant always be demonstrated as chickens only need it done once a year.)
