Do you keep chickens?

We don't keep chickens but I know many of you do so you may be interested in a new website that is currently under construction.



If you keep chickens this site offers a new online community designed for people like you - to share your tips on raising backyard chickens from choosing the poultry house, chicken coop or luxury hen house to choosing the poultry equipment and supplies and more importantly it's a place just to meet others.

As well as providing links to equipment and supplies, key features of this new site are:1. You can create your own free website page
2. Upload up to four images to go with your story
3. You URL will appear www.my-chicken-house.com/yourtitle.html
3. You can choose to opt in to receive email notifications when anyone leaves a comment on your page
4. You can bookmark your own web page for family and friends and the world to see!

  1. I don't keep chickens but I've always wanted to, ever since I went collecting eggs from my friend's chickens when I was a child. We've toyed with the idea but I don't think it's the right time to commit at present.

  2. Livestock is a committment isn't it?- You can hardly take your chickens on holiday with you! Also I'd worry about them if I had to leave them on the plot.

  3. I don't keep chickens...I'm always worried I wouldn't have the time to tend to them on the plot....I think if I was going to go for keeping something alive it would be bees...do you know anything about bee keeping??

  4. Sorry Tanya don't know a thing about keeping bees - a couple of people on our site have fancied keeping a hive but the council won't allow it.

  5. S'cuse me butting in here re: Tanya's question about bee keeping - have a look at Phil Chandler's site - he keeps bees in a completely different way to that advocated by the British Beekeeping Association. His methods seem far more holistic and definitely the way I will try things in a year or two.

    I have his book (Barefoot Beekeeper) and it's wonderful - no affiliation, etc, he probably doesn't know I exist!
