Keeping Pet Chickens At Home
Keeping Pet Chickens, A Rewarding Hobby
Keeping pet chickens is great fun and relaxing at the same time. They make productive pets and they’re definitely a magnet for children.
On returning home after a stressful day you can become instantly relaxed by the greeting your feathered friends will show you.
Hens are relatively inexpensive to feed or look after and they certainly won’t become a burden on your time, as they need just a little attention to keep them in great condition.
Of course, best of all, your chooks will supply you with beautiful fresh eggs for you, your family and friends. You’ll also have the gift of them producing excellent manure for your home garden.
Chicken Keeping Is A Joy For The Whole Family
Can you imagine your children naming the baby chicks and then help nurturing them into fully matured egg laying chickens? What better way could there be of introducing your family, first hand to nature, by keeping chickens at home.
But of course it’s not just the children who’ll get great enjoyment from raising chickens… You’ll soon be spotting the different characters within your birds and recognising who rules the roost when your hens sort out the pecking order within your flock.
It’s also great fun (and gives your neighbours something to talk about) when you dash out, still in your pyjamas, to the coop and grab a couple of warm fresh eggs for your breakfast…
