Great £150 prize

Here’s a chance for you to win a fantastic selection of poultry products!

Durham Hens and Your Chickens have teamed up to offer this prize worth £150.

Durham Hens supplies hybrids, pure breed chickens, chicks and hatching eggs as well as coops and general poultry supplies. They also offer hen holidays and courses.

The company was voted Best Poultry Supplier 2013. The owners, Alec and Margaret Manchester, have many years experience of keeping and breeding chickens.

Their website includes a ‘Hen Health’ page with a symptom sorter and list of common ailments. This allows the reader to identify the possible causes of any problem and see what treatment is necessary. Margaret said: “This is the most visited page on our website, which just goes to prove how much people love their hens. If owners notice any changes in behaviour or signs of illness, they want to know what they can do to help.”

Durham Hens stock a huge range of health care products which can be purchased at their premises and through their online shop.
