Keeping chickens is relatively trouble-free once you have a routine going, but it’s surprising how much there is to learn about keeping a small back garden or allotment flock. We decided to pour our knowledge and experience of chicken keeping into handy guides. If you’ve thought about keeping chickens or just recently acquired some, hopefully our guides will help your new venture into chicken keeping feel less daunting.Continue reading “Guide to Keeping Chickens – Housing Your Chickens”
Just after new year I received some very exciting news from Bed-Down Premium Poultry Bedding – I had won first prize in their Facebook competition!!
Here’s what I won:
Well, I almost fainted. What a great start to 2018!
First up I’d like to thank Bed-Down for running such a generous competition and for picking little ol’ me as the winner. I’ve never won anything quite like this before, the coop will really come in handy when we build the extra chicken run we’ve planned for some time now, more about that soon. The bedding smells divine and being super soft it’s particularly perfect for tatty ex battery hens needing some extra TLC and a nice soft bed to rest in at night. I know our hens are going to love snuggling down in it. Thank you to Marriage’s for the Royal Variety mixed corn, I can honestly say it’s the best we’ve ever used with our chickens. It’s contains pieces of carrot, peas and sunflower seeds, our hens go bonkers for it.
The coop and bedding were delivered to us a couple of days ago, I’m not well enough to have a photo done with it just yet due to recent surgery so Bed-Down kindly allowed me to use theirs. Once I’m able to I will take more photos and move some chickens in! Hurrah!
