Keeping Chickens Through The Winter
13th January 2010 · No Comments
The marvellous hens and chicken coop we bought from Moorlands Poultry Supplies at Bottomhouse last spring have been keeping us in eggs all winter so far.
The hens are obviously a bit fed up with the snow as they never venture outside the coop, but we keep them topped up with warm water and layers pellets and they reward us with 4 eggs a day!
Keeping chickens is so easy, I can fully understand why it’s becoming so popular nationwide.
You need so little kit and hardly any room to keep a few chickens – everyone should have a go.
Quick plug: Moorlands Poultry are now doing eco-friendly chicken coops and arks, made entirely from 100% recycled plastics so be sure to check out their website!
