My Partner and I left the hustle and bustle of a town in May 2006 and moved to a house in the country. I had wanted chickens for many years and the eglu provided me with the perfect environment for them. In July 2006, my eglu arrived complete with 3 chickens!! We have never looked back. It is such a rewarding thing to do. The excitement of collecting fresh eggs from your own back garden is wonderful As i work as Cabin Crew, I am away from home for a couple of nights a week. The eglu keeps the chickens safe when I am away. I recently ordered another eglu and more chickens as the eggs were becoming more popular with Family, Neighbours and the Post Man!
I have 2 eglus and 4 chickens, which are my absolute joy. They are the easiest pets i have ever had and reward me daily with their antics and of course eggs! Since getting chickens our outlook on green living has changed. I grow lots of our own vegetables, try to source our food locally and make jams and jellies from the local hedgerow.
Our friends always comment on the beautiful colour yolks from our eggs and we have them queuing up at the door for more! I love getting up in the morning to let them out. Watching them dash to the feeders for breakfast, then have a leisurely dust bath and good scratch around! If you have ever thought about keeping chickens but have never acted on it, then come along and meet 'The Girls'. They bring my garden to life and I couldn't imagine life without them. Please note - due to graveled paths the house/garden is not wheelchair friendly, sorry. Whilst I love dogs, I'm afraid that my chickens are not used to them.
I now also have a new Eglu Go, which as yet is not filled with hens! It won't be long until it is though....
