Many of us dream of keeping a few hens in our gardens, but never fulfil those ambitions, imagining we don’t have the time, the space or the capabilities. I’m going to guide you through the simple process that will result in your own flock of hens happily pecking around your backyard, laying baskets of delicious eggs. A few extra tried and tested management tips will make sure they don’t wreck your garden; we’ll answer the questions: why keep hens and which breed is best for me, and give you all the help you need for your birds to live long, happy and healthy lives.
