Chicken Boarding

I offer poultry boarding at our home in Walterstone.

I have been keeping poultry for over 13 years now and understand how important it is when I go away to know my poultry are safe and well cared for.

I can take groups of up to 8 chickens (cockerels welcome), in secure fox-proof houses (one wood, and the rest are recycled plastic) with secure runs. I can also offer a collection and return service.

I also sell the fantastic Green Frog Designs recycled hen houses! We use these for boarders and they are incredibly easy to clean, very hygienic-prevent red mite! They are well ventilated and fabulous looking too. Please see my poultry housing page for full details.

Please see my terms and conditions for full details, charges etc. If you would like to book please fill in the Poultry Boarding Registration form below. You can also contact me on 07735401076
