If you’re going away on holiday, finding someone to look after your chickens can be a bit of a chore! Here at Warwickshire Chicken Coop we are happy to look after them for you.

Hen Boarding in Warwickshire

Looking after your hens

Your chickens will be kept safe in our ‘visitor accommodation’ and housed away from our chickens for sale, to minimise disease risk. We now have 10 coops for our guests to stay in. Your chickens will be kept in safe, secure Omlet Cubes and Gos which will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after each group. Your girls will have space to run around, comfortable sleeping quarters, bars for roosting and a comfy nest box to lay. They will be kept on sanitised woodchip which is removed and replaced with fresh for each group of visitors to ensure everything is clean and welcoming. Each coop is fitted with a wind/rain cover so your girls have a dry spot to enjoy.

We also welcome cockerels (no matter how noisy!).

Your girls will be fed layers pellets and given constant fresh water. If permissible we will also feed them fresh greens and handfuls of corn/mealworms and other treats. You are welcome to bring your own feed if you prefer and any other additions to your girls regular routine.Your hens will be kept in clean, healthy conditions and we will clean the coop and run out as necessary. We have seen some truly shocking 'hen boarding accommodation' in our efforts to research and explore the market, and can guarantee your hens will be kept in clean, healthy conditions that you, as an owner would be proud of.

See what our customers have already said about our hen boarding service

" I Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for looking after my chucks so wonderfully (as always) whilst I was away over Easter. I always feel so confident that they will be really well looked after when they are with you - they live in an Omlet Cube at home so it's fantastic that you now have the same accommodation for them to stay in with you - a real home from home for them! Thanks also for offering a "worming service" for holiday hens - that's just fantastic! I'm hoping to arrange another holiday shortly so will be in touch to book the girls in for another stay with you!" Ann Morris who's hens stay with us regularly

If you like, we will keep any eggs your chickens lay and you can have them as a ‘welcome home present’ from your girls when you return!

Because we are so concerned with the health and wellbeing of our own chickens, as well as yours, we will give your girls a thorough once over when they arrive. This isn't to test you, or put you on the spot, we do this for three reasons; 1) to check you are happy with the condition you are leaving them in, and the comparable condition they go back to you in 2) to check if they have any lice or other infectious diseases. This is to minimise any disease risk to our own hens and other borders. Don't worry if your hens do have lice (it's very common!) we will treat them accordingly at no charge. (we do reserve the right to not take in any hens with serious infectious diseases however) and 3) we want to know your chickens as much as possible and this includes all their little ailments - forewarned is forearmed! Some customers have even written us notes and asked us to keep diaries while they are away!
