1. Hi Emma, aww thanks so much for posting! You must of read my mind , I was looking up information for keeping chickens today!

    Thanks for sharing your info, Ive joined the fb group 🙂 Never thought of checking house deeds to see if chickens can be kept, such a good piece of advice.

    I was wondering how talkative/noisy 🙂 two chickens would be or does it depend on the breed?xxxx

  2. Fantastic and so informative. I’d love chickens but my cat is such a hunter, plus we get so many foxed I just couldn’t bear the thought of buying chickens because I guarantee they wouldn’t last long. Our garden is very boggy too so I’m sure they’d dig under whatever we made! In the future with a better garden though definitely!

  3. Aww this is a lovely post, really helpful and informative. We had 5 chickens couple of years ago – three were bought from a little farm near us from being young, and we rescued the other two from a battery farm. They were absolutely featherless and battered as you can imagine, but we nursed and fed them back to life! When I found out I was pregnant with my third baby I thought it best that we re-home them as I knew we wouldn’t have the time to devote to them. They went to a loving family with kids who adored them 🙂 x

  4. We’ve kept chickens for 7 or 8 years now and this post would have been so handy when we first started out. You are quite right about the foxes – we’ve lost a few over the years, even with the electric fence. We always wanted to hatch our own too but never got round to it….
