We have 30 lovely hens and two cockerels which are in separate with their own hen each. The eggs are delicious and we sell them which pays for their feed. They are great diggers in the winter! all our veg plots are caged and the plot next to their big run is where I grow all my spring summer crops for summer/autumn harvest, once everything is picked, the lead in gate is open and they do all the work of clearing up and preparing the soil for me :-) very amusing and easy to keep, they just need a warm well ventilated home with roosting bars, inbuilt nesting boxes, a secure run to keep the foxes out. We clean them out every weekend and refill the nest boxes with hay as needed. If you havent got any, go for it! you only need two hens to be self sufficient with fresh eggs :-)

Your cockerel looks very healthy, if a tad bad tempered! used to keep chickens many moons ago.

I have bad memories of being cornered by the rooster when I went into the hen house to collect the eggs..( I was 4) He used his spurs on me...I can still remember ducking and covering my head... We had roast rooster for the next Sunday dinner!!
