Home Visits & Delivery
We understand not everyone finds it easy to handle their chickens or spot problems with them so we offer a range of home visits to help you care for your hens. If the service you are looking for is not listed please do contact us.
For those who struggle to handle the heavy feed sacks etc. for a small charge we can also deliver your feed & products within the local area and unload it in a place of your choice as well as offering nationwide courier delivery.
Day & evening appointments available.
The Health Visit
Do you find it hard to catch, handle & treat your chickens? We can visit you at home and offer the following services:
* General Health Checks
* Wing Clipping.
* Treatment for Body Lice
* Fitting Beak or Bumpa Bits
* Treatment for Scaly Leg
* Beak and nail trimming
* Red mite checks and advice.
We carry with us all the products needed. We would just ask that you have your hens confined in an accessible house or run before we arrive.
Included in the £45 price:
- Included is our travelling time & costs up to 6 miles from WR13 5AZ (there is an additional charge of £1 per mile over this limit).
- 30 minutes of our time (from arrival) spent helping with your hens in whatever way you choose - this could be advice and guidance or treating the birds for a lice infestation etc.
Rather than charge per bird treatment we charge by time. Extra 15 minute increments of time are charged at £5.
- The cost of products needed to treat the hens is included, meaning you don't have to buy lots of products you'll never use!

Unloading and settling them in to their new home.
30 minutes of our time (from arrival) running through any questions you may have or showing you how to handle your new birds.
The Holiday Service
We offer a few options if you are going away on holiday.
1. You can either bring your hens to here to stay with us in our Omlet holiday 'chalets'.
2. For larger flocks or if you prefer not to move them, Meg (who works here) has her own Smallholder services business offering home visits and house sits for smallholders. She can come and do a daily check of your hens, top up feeders and drinkers, collect eggs, clean out etc - Please see her separate website for details by clicking here
