I thought you might like an update on the chicks, who are doing very well! They are really big now, especially their feet, and are growing lovely wings and tails. They love to perch on the edge of the brooder and watch what’s going on in the classroom and they eat and drink a lot. I am leaving the light off more and more as they were getting quite hot and panting. I’ve been turning it on at night though. They seem comfortable with this arrangement, so if you think it’s ok then I’ll carry on like that.
We are proud to sell houses which are well designed and well made.
We have four designs, intended to be either used with the attached run, or be freestanding in the garden or in a large pen. The Princess is the largest house, while the Lady House will accomodate two or three chickens comfortably.

About the Shop
We have stocked feeders and drinkers for a while, but in a bike shed and out of view. In 2009 I cleared out the summer house that had been used for storage since we moved here in 2005 and started the shop. At first finding suppliers was difficult, but as the shop became established it has become easier to stock it.
From the outset we have only stocked items that we use here and find effective, so the feeders, drinkers and louse powder that you find in the shop are also used on the farm.
We have expanded into all things egg and have now started on a range of Chickenalia for a smile around the house at an outrageous chicken statue or a grumpy chick whisk in the kitchen. Click on the Chickenalia tab on the left to see what we have.
The items in the Shop on the website are for collection here, but we can post items if you email us with your order. Contact us from the Contact tab below.
