Why Buy Chickens
Chickens are a fantastic pet that are not only loveable but a fantastic recession buster. Chickens are an inexpensive pet to own and offer benefits through the fresh eggs that they lay allowing you to reduce your outgoings.
Why Buy a Chicken Coop
Chicken coops make a fantastic home for your chickens and it is vitally important that your chicken coop makes your chickens feel safe and secure. If your chickens do not feel comfortable then there will be negative effects on the eggs that they lay so it is important to house your chickens in an environment which they are comfortable.
Chicken coops are a great way to protect your chickens from predators and there are a range of chicken coops that include chicken runs and easy access nesting boxes offering the highest security for your chickens.
Many people do try and build their own chicken coops but many people do not realise that chickens can pick up many diseases through old wood that isn’t treated. Walton’s chicken coops are built from Chinese fir wood which offers a reliable and safe design which allows your chickens to have the perfect hen house.
