Real Life Chicken Keeping: Lost Eggs, Hosepipes and Hedges


Troublesome Chooks

If you’ve got a spare minute head over to Pocket Farm Magazine to have a chuckle reading my latest published article about the sometimes comical contrast between the myth and reality of small scale chicken care.

Books, articles and YouTube videos may all make the daily routine of chicken keeping appear a doddle, but those of us with a few feathered friends know that this is not always the case.

Let me know what you think and aspiring chicken keepers take note!

(Pocket Farm Magazine is a great site that provides a whole host of useful tips, articles and advice for anyone interested in farming, self-sufficiency, permaculture and conservation. Well worth a visit!)

    Liked your article but you left out the poop on the bottom of your slipper first thing in the morning.

    Loved the article. We have discovered that chickens are the Gateway to all the other animals we now have, which require milking and bottle feeding. We have pigs about to deliver. As much as they drive us crazy, we love these animals, and they definitely do have feisty personalities. That’s for sure! Enjoy.
