I confirm by buying live chickens I will:
- Provide a secure, fox proof house with good ventilation and perches for them to sleep on. They will be locked in overnight if their run is not predator proof.
- Provide at least 1 square metre of run space for bantams and 2 square metres for medium and large birds.
- Provide a constant supply of clean water.
- Provide a constant supply of layers mash or layers pellets.
- Supply a constant supply of mixed grit & oyster shell.
- Will put temporary bowls of food & water in different areas for the first few weeks whilst the pecking order is established.
- I have purchased a minimum of 2 x birds.
