Chicken care

Chickens are the most common and widespread domestic animals in the world. Keeping chickens at home as pets is becoming much more popular, especially when you know you'll have a constant supply of fresh organic eggs.

Chickens can live for between five to ten years, and some have been known to live longer! That's quite a commitment. Will you be able to devote some time each day to looking after your pet chickens? Think about all the different things before you make your final decision.
