If you are thinking about keeping free range Chickens in Essex or Suffolk, you will find it is a wonderful hobby and something that has become more and more popular over recent years. The pleasure of seeing a group of hens scratching about the pen and collecting freshly laid eggs each morning, in our opinion, you just can’t beat!

Most people assume that keeping domestic Chickens is an intensive job, but this couldn’t be further from the truth, once you buy your chickens and have prepared the coop and run, they really don’t require much from you at all! They will need a little time to settle in and then we estimate 20 minutes a day to feed, water and let them out.
