HAPPY CHOOKMAS!

Your Chickens - - Contents -

I LOVE my chick­ens dur­ing all sea­sons, but I have to say I’m not a fan of wad­ing through snow to feed them and de-ice their drinkers — but there’s no get­ting away from it. They have to be tended to twice a day. I have about 20 chick­ens, but imag­ine if you had 54 and they were all pay­ing guests ex­pect­ing five-star lux­ury. That is ex­actly what David Roberts has to con­tend with ev­ery win­ter, as his The Chicken Ho­tel in Corn­wall is a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for chooks whose own­ers are get­ting away for the fes­tive sea­son. In a fea­ture that kick starts our Christ­mas sec­tion, David di­vulges the Christ­mas day sched­ule for his feath­ered guests (page 4).

New this year to make your big day that ex­tra bit spe­cial we have some amaz­ing prizes for you to win in our Great Give­away. Free to en­ter, turn to page 8, de­cide which chick gifts you would love, fill in the coupon and post it off. What could be sim­pler? Good luck!
