Hi, I did not know about the roughly cost of keeping chickens in the UK, but I now quite understand what I have to consider. Your guidance is easy to understand and follow; thank you for your assistance in making people aware of pets.

I’m interested in the Ixworth chickens. I’m a new chicken owner and have five Easter eggers and one Jersey Giant. I am interested in the Ixworth, because it’s considered an endangered species. I would like to start raising them and help their numbers to increase again. Can anyone point me the right direction to accomplish this?

Is there a place I can get a power cord in to supply heat to the coop?
