Chickens have become the favourite craze for this summer, and with their plucky characters and definite perks, it’s understandable why. Waking up to freshly laid eggs in the morning has become the ultimate ‘good life’ dream of many homeowners, and the best bit? Anyone can do it. As long as you have a garden, you have the makings of your very own chicken coop.
To give you a helping hand, here at Cotswold Chickens we have decided to give you a guide outlining the key essentials needed to keep chickens. We also run chicken keeping courses which are great for those who want a confidence boost in handling their first set of chickens. They don’t need a lot, but what they do need is necessary for their safety and happiness.
Home is Where the Heart Is
Once you’ve had chickens you will never go back, as with a little love and attention, chickens make adorable pets. Every pet needs a home, and chickens are no exception. Living outside, they need a home which shelters them from the wind and rain, while giving ventilation in the hot summer months (we do have them occasionally).
Here at Cotswold Chickens we have a range of different coops, so finding one which fits into your space and garden designs Ascot is easy.
Food and Refreshments
Like us, chickens love their food – especially the foods which are not particularly healthy for them. You need a feeder and water container so that your chickens have access to food and refreshments whenever they desire.
You can get a variety of different types, styles and colours from us here at Cotswold Chickens. Our starter kits are great for those new to chickens, as they give you all the essentials in one package.
We hope that your new life with your chickens is a happy one, and if you need any more advice or support then please do not hesitate to contact us. We are very passionate about chickens, and are happy to share our knowledge with those who want it. If you would like to contact us then phone us on 01608 683 912.
